Description Vasyl Kaigorodov 2015-01-12 09:56:59 UTC
Linux kernel built with the Virtual Dynamic Shared Object(vDSO) support is
vulnerable to an information leakage flaw. It occurs due to less than perfect
address randomisation, which leads to leakage of vDSO library base address.

An unprivileged user could use this flaw to leak kernel memory addresses.

Statement:

This issue affects the versions of the Linux kernel as shipped with
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, 7 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2. Future kernel
updates for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 may
address this issue.


Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is now in Production 3 Phase of the support and
maintenance life cycle. This has been rated as having Low security
impact and is not currently planned to be addressed in future updates. For
additional information, refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Life
Cycle: https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/.
