Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of raw_sendmsg allowing a local attacker to panic the kernel or possibly leak kernel addresses. A local attacker, with the privilege of creating raw sockets, can abuse a possible race condition when setting the socket option to allow the kernel to automatically create ip header values and thus potentially escalate their privileges.

Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1526933]

Comment 4 Petr Matousek 2017-12-18 11:42:49 UTC
Statement:

This issue does not affect the Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, 7 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 as they do not contain the upstream commit (c008ba5bdc9f) that allows this issue to be exploited.

This issue affects the Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for ARM and Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Power LE.

Future Linux kernel updates for the respective releases may address this issue.

Comment 5 Petr Matousek 2017-12-18 11:44:44 UTC
What is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for ARM 64,
        Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for Power 9 LE

The kernel package as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for ARM 64 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for Power 9 LE is an updated kernel intended to support new architectures not available at the time of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 original shipping. The new kernel version is based on an upstream Linux kernel version 4.11. The offering is distributed with other updated packages, but most of the userspace is the standard Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Server RPM files.
