Hi All,

Just installed latest kernel

Code: Select all

# uname -a
Linux un2 2.6.32-754.23.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Sep 26 12:05:41 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I'd like to know what is fixed in this release. Unfortunately the release notes don't seem up to date

Code: Select all

rpm -q --changelog kernel | head
* Tue Jun 18 2019 Johnny Hughes <johnny@centos.org> [2.6.32-754.15.3.el6]
- Manual CentOS Debranding

* Thu Jun 13 2019 Phillip Lougher <plougher@redhat.com> [2.6.32-754.15.3.el6]
- [net] tcp: enforce tcp_min_snd_mss in tcp_mtu_probing() (Florian Westphal) [1719614] {CVE-2019-11479}
- [net] tcp: add tcp_min_snd_mss sysctl (Florian Westphal) [1719614] {CVE-2019-11479}
- [net] tcp: tcp_fragment() should apply sane memory limits (Florian Westphal) [1719840] {CVE-2019-11478}

- [net] tcp: pass previous skb to tcp_shifted_skb() (Florian Westphal) [1719585] {CVE-2019-11477}
Where do I find the CVEs fixed in the kernel I just installed ?

You have probably more than one kernel installed.
Look at specific kernel package:

Code: Select all

rpm -q --changelog kernel-2.6.32-754.23.1.el6 | less
