IAVA: 2011-A-0147

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

The task_show_regs function in arch/s390/kernel/traps.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.38-rc4-next-20110216 on the s390 platform allows local users to obtain the values of the registers of an arbitrary process by reading a status file under /proc/.

Find out more about CVE-2011-0710 from the MITRE CVE dictionary and NIST NVD.

Statement

This issue did not affect the version of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise MRG as it does not have support for the S390 architecture. A future kernel update in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 may address this flaw. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 is now in Production 3 of the maintenance life-cycle,
https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/, therefore the fix for
this issue is not currently planned to be included in the future updates. This has been addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0429.html.
