Because Stack Protection works by adding a single check value (a canary) to the stack before the return address, a buffer overflow could overwrite other buffers on the stack before that canary depending on how things get ordered, so it was important for us to check properly. We can’t completely rule it out, though, as an attacker may be able to use some other mechanism to bypass it (for example, if they can determine the value of the stack canary, maybe a race condition, combining it with some other flaw). Based on a technical investigation we concluded that with Stack Protection enabled, it would be quite unlikely to be able to exploit this to gain code execution.
Each available service has a start script in the directory /etc/rc. Com init process tutorials. After installation of Linux one should determine which system services one needs. It is easiest to use the Red Hat GUI tool:.

We also used the time to provide clearly understood information about the flaw, and how it impacted our products, which can be found in the Vulnerability Article noted below. Red Hat, along with other Linux distribution vendors and the upstream Kernel security team, received one week advance notice on BlueBorne in order to prepare patches and updates. We used this time to evaluate the issue, develop the fix and build and test updated packages for supported versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Those external entities can do things such as access local network resources, or read local files. There have been three issues raised in the month of May 2017 relating to JAXP on Red Hat JBoss EAP 7: CVE-2017-7464, CVE-2017-7465, and CVE-2017-7503. All of the issues are XML External Entity (XXE) vulnerabilities, which have affected Java since 2002. A successful attack occurs when XML input contains external entities. XXE is a type of attack that affects weakly configured XML parsers.
We hope to continue to build on the breadth of analytics available on the Red Hat Container Catalog. While we would love to provide similar ratings to all container images, we currently only rate Red Hat RPM-based container images because of the data available for analysis.
For those interested in automation, in addition to the usual machine-consumable CVRF and OVAL data we have been providing for years, we also provide a Security Data API that everyone is welcome to make reasonable use of and easily query for many kinds of security information they are interested in regarding our products.
A recent and typical case of Linux network failure was the friend who rang up to say his "network had stopped". On Fedora and Red Hat the filename would be of the form . The simplest command to use for this is ifconfig:.
That risk is not being confined to the users of the obsolete technologies; as the DROWN and other cross-protocol attacks have demonstrated, it is sufficient for a server to only enable a legacy protocol in parallel with the latest one, for all of its users to be vulnerable. Furthermore, the recent cryptographic advances against the SHA-1 algorithm used for digital signatures, demonstrate the need for algorithm agility in modern infrastructures. SHA-1 was an integral part of the Internet and private Public Key Infrastructures and despite that, we must envision a not so distant future with systems that no longer rely on SHA-1 for any cryptographic purpose.

If a developer is using JAXP on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7 they need to be aware that Red Hat JBoss EAP 7 ships it’s own implementation, with some differences from JDK 8 that are covered in this article. The Java Development Kit (JDK) version 8 provides the Java API for XML Processing (JAXP).
