Posted on: 04/22/2004 05:30 PM

An kernel update has been released for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Updated kernel packages fix security vulnerabilities
Advisory ID: RHSA-2004:183-01
Issue date: 2004-04-22
Updated on: 2004-04-22
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords:
Cross references:
Obsoletes: RHSA-2004:066
CVE Names: CAN-2004-0109 CAN-2004-0424
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Topic:

Updated kernel packages that fix two privilege escalation vulnerabilities are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - athlon, i386, i686, ia64, ppc64, ppc64iseries, ppc64pseries, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - athlon, i386, i686
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - athlon, i386, i686, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system.

iSEC Security Research discovered a flaw in the ip_setsockopt() function code of the Linux kernel versions 2.4.22 to 2.4.25 inclusive. This flaw also affects the 2.4.21 kernel in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 which contained a backported version of the affected code. A local user could use this flaw to gain root privileges. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0424 to this issue.

iDefense reported a buffer overflow flaw in the ISO9660 filesystem code. An attacker could create a malicious filesystem in such a way that root privileges may be obtained if the filesystem is mounted. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0109 to this issue.

All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 users are advised to upgrade their kernels to the packages associated with their machine architectures and configurations as listed in this erratum.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.

If up2date fails to connect to Red Hat Network due to SSL Certificate Errors, you need to install a version of the up2date client with an updated certificate. The latest version of up2date is available from the Red Hat FTP site and may also be downloaded directly from the RHN website:

https://rhn.redhat.com/help/latest-up2date.pxt

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

120028 - CAN-2004-0109 kernel iso9660 buffer overflow
121314 - Linux kernel setsockopt MCAST_MSFILTER integer overflow
