MDKSA-2004:066 - Updated kernel packages
Posted on: 07/07/2004 05:07 AM

A kernel update is available for Mandrakelinux
_______________________________________________________________________

Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: kernel
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:066
Date: July 6th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1,
Multi Network Firewall 8.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in the Linux kernel that are corrected with this update:

Multiple vulnerabilities were found by the Sparse source checker that could allow local users to elevate privileges or gain access to kernel memory (CAN-2004-0495).

Missing Discretionary Access Controls (DAC) checks in the chown(2) system call could allow an attacker with a local account to change the group ownership of arbitrary files, which could lead to root privileges on affected systems (CAN-2004-0497).

An information leak vulnerability that affects only ia64 systems was fixed (CAN-2004-0565).

Insecure permissions on /proc/scsi/qla2300/HbaApiNode could allow a local user to cause a DoS on the system; this only affects Mandrakelinux 9.2 and below (CAN-2004-0587).

A vulnerability that could crash the kernel has also been fixed. This crash, however, can only be exploited via root (in br_if.c).

The provided packages are patched to fix these vulnerabilities. All users are encouraged to upgrade to these updated kernels.

To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at:
