Subject: Security ERRATA Moderate: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 kernel update on SL5.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Wednesday 16th October 2013 15:10:35 UTC (over 2 years ago)
Synopsis:          Moderate: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 kernel update
Advisory ID:       SLSA-2013:1348-1
Issue Date:        2013-09-30
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2012-4398
--

This update fixes the following security issue:

It was found that a deadlock could occur in the Out of Memory (OOM)
killer. A process could trigger this deadlock by consuming a large amount
of memory, and then causing request_module() to be called. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service
(excessive memory consumption). (CVE-2012-4398, Moderate)

The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.
