1. What's Included in This Update
This update includes a new Parallels Server Bare Metal 5.0 kernel (2.6.32-042stab094.8) based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 kernel (2.6.32-431.29.2.el6). The new kernel introduces a security fix.
2. Bug Fixes
- A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel handled GS segment register base switching when recovering from an #SS (stack segment) fault on an erroneous return to user space. A local, unprivileged Container user could use this flaw to crash the Hardware Node or escalate their privileges on the system. (#PSBM-30745)
