DSA 479-2: New Linux 2.4.18 packages fix local root exploit (i386)
Posted on: 04/15/2004 03:03 AM

The kernel update for Debian GNU/Linux has been re-released because of a build error

Debian Security Advisory DSA 479-2 security@debian.org

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : kernel-image-2.4.18-1-i386
Vulnerability : several vulnerabilities
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0003 CAN-2004-0010 CAN-2004-0109 CAN-2004-0177 CAN-2004-0178

Several serious problems have been discovered in the Linux kernel. This update takes care of Linux 2.4.18 for the i386 architecture. This advisory replaces the i386 part of DSA 479-1 (except for the i386bf part). An unfortunate build error caused some of the kernel packages in DSA 479-1 to be broken. They are updated with this advisory.

These problems will also be fixed by upstream in Linux 2.4.26 and future versions of 2.6.

The following security matrix explains which kernel versions for which architecture are already fixed. Kernel images in the unstable Debian distribution (sid) will be fixed soon.

Architecture stable (woody) unstable (sid) removed in sid
source 2.4.18-14.3 2.4.25-3 --
alpha 2.4.18-15 soon --
i386 2.4.18-13.1 soon --
i386bf 2.4.18-5woody8 soon --
powerpc 2.4.18-1woody5 2.4.25-8 2.4.22

We recommend that you upgrade your kernel packages immediately, either with a Debian provided kernel or with a self compiled one.
