Security update series of three Common Exposures and Vulnerabilities

Post by somaraz » 2019/11/14 02:08:15

Dear All,

Red Hat Product Security is aware of a series of vulnerabilities - CVE-2018-12207 - Machine Check Error on Page Size Change, CVE-2019-11135 - TSX Asynchronous Abort, and CVE-2019-0155, CVE-2019-0154 - i915 graphics driver.

Regarding to CentOS 7 do we have any work around ?

Thanks,

There are new kernels on their way for all supported CentOS Versions. I haven't checked the CVE numbers you listed but they are for the latest set of Intel vulnerabilities.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

As always, when they're ready. Red Hat have released them for RHEL, CentOS will rebuild and publish ASAP.

Short of simply looking for a new kernel drop on the system, is there any other way to get status on these kernel updates? I'm guessing not, but worth asking.

As far as I know there are no pending updates for CentOS 7. The latest kernel is kernel-3.10.0-1062.4.3.el7.x86_64 and was released a few days ago.

Mails are sent to the centos-announce mailing list when new packages are released.
