Linux Kernel Vulnerability in RedHAT 4.13.4
A Linux kernel vulnerability that is being exploited in the wild has been discovered by RedHAT, and is being pursued by them to prevent a costly attack. The vulnerability affects all versions of Linux Kernel 4.13.4, and it's a local privilege escalation (LPE) bug. It's possible for a local attacker to exploit this bug to gain root access on the targeted system without any prior privileges, which means they can completely takeover the system with no restrictions.
The vulnerability was identified among thousands of bugs submitted to the CVE-2019-5736 portal, which was created in order to track vulnerabilities found in open source software. This portal has received over 18,000 submissions so far and about 1,000 of them are still waiting for validation from RedHAT or other organizations like Intel who have been tasked to test these vulnerabilities and validate if they are exploitable or not before adding them into the CVE-2019-5736 database.
This vulnerability was discovered in August 2018, but had not been fixed until now because of its severity and unknown impact on devices running such version of kernel including many computers that were shipped with vulnerable kernels as part of their operating system installation.
To protect your systems against this vulnerability you will need to install patches released by RedHat after public disclosure on September 12th 2019.
