INSTALLING THE UPDATES
We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack running UEKR4 4.1.12 on
OL6 and OL7 install these updates.
On systems that have "autoinstall = yes" in /etc/uptrack/uptrack.conf,
these updates will be installed automatically and you do not need to
take any action.
Alternatively, you can install these updates by running:
# /usr/sbin/uptrack-upgrade -y
* CVE-2017-12146: Privilege escalation using a sysfs entry from platform driver.
Incorrect locking when using 'driver_override' entry of platform driver
sysfs could lead to a race condition. A local attacker could use this
flaw to escalate privilege.
* CVE-2017-17558: Buffer overrun in USB core via integer overflow.
Failing to sanitize the bNumInterfaces field in a USB device descriptor
could allow a malicious device to induce a buffer overrun, potentially
causing a denial-of-service.
* CVE-2017-16645: Out-of-bounds access when using IMS Passenger Control Unit
A missing check when using IMS Passenger Control Unit Devices could
lead to an out-of-bounds access. A local attacker could use this flaw to
cause a denial-of-service.
* CVE-2017-16643: Out-of-bounds access in GTCO CalComp/InterWrite USB tablet HID
A validation failure when parsing a HID report from a GTCO
CalComp/InterWrite USB tablet can result in an out-of-bounds memory
access. A user with physical access to a system could use this flaw to
cause undefined behaviour or potentially escalate privileges.
* CVE-2018-1093: Denial-of-service in ext4 bitmap block validity check.
A failure to correctly validate bitmap information from an ext4
filesystem can result in an out-of-bounds read, leading to a Kernel
crash. A local user with the ability to mount an ext4 filesystem could
use this flaw to cause a denial-of-service.
* Failure to initialize USB3 storage devices.
A logic error when initializing USB devices can result in USB3 storage
devices being unmountable.
