Description

LSAC(v2)
The crash packages provide the core analysis suite, which is a self-contained tool that can be used to investigate live systems, kernel core dumps created from the netdump, diskdump and kdump packages from Red Hat Linux, as well as the mcore kernel patch offered by Mission Critical Linux, or the LKCD kernel patch. This update fixes the following bug: * Kernel CVE-2014-9322 removed the stackfault exception stack, which in turn caused the crash utility to generate incorrect backtraces for any active tasks whose backtrace started from a kernel exception stack. A patch has been provided to fix this bug, and crash now produces valid backtraces. (BZ#1192396) Users of crash are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
