Red Hat has issued an update for the kernel. This fixes a vulnerability, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or to potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error within the PR-SCTP (Partial Reliable Stream Control Transmission Protocol) implementation when handling Forward-TSN chunks with large stream IDs and can be exploited to crash a system or potentially execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges.
Successful exploitation requires an established SCTP connection.
Solution: Updated packages are available via Red Hat Network.
