=====================================================================
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: systemtap security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2011:0841-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0841.html
Issue date:        2011-05-31
CVE Names:         CVE-2011-1769 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated systemtap packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

SystemTap is an instrumentation system for systems running the Linux
kernel, version 2.6. Developers can write scripts to collect data on the
operation of the system.

A divide-by-zero flaw was found in the way SystemTap handled malformed
debugging information in DWARF format. When SystemTap unprivileged mode was
enabled, an unprivileged user in the stapusr group could use this flaw to
crash the system. Additionally, a privileged user (root, or a member of the
stapdev group) could trigger this flaw when tricked into instrumenting a
specially-crafted ELF binary, even when unprivileged mode was not enabled.
(CVE-2011-1769)

SystemTap users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
