1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues in the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4 kernel are now available.

This security advisory has been rated as having important security impact
by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, noarch, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, noarch, x86_64

3. Problem description:

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

These new kernel packages contain fixes for the security issues
described below:

- - a flaw in network IGMP processing that a allowed a remote user on the
local network to cause a denial of service (disabling of multicast reports)
if the system is running multicast applications (CVE-2002-2185, moderate)

- - a flaw which allowed a local user to write to firmware on read-only
opened /dev/cdrom devices (CVE-2004-1190, moderate)

- - a flaw in gzip/zlib handling internal to the kernel that may allow a
local user to cause a denial of service (crash) (CVE-2005-2458, low)

- - a flaw in procfs handling during unloading of modules that allowed a
local user to cause a denial of service or potentially gain privileges
(CVE-2005-2709, moderate)

- - a flaw in the SCSI procfs interface that allowed a local user to cause a
denial of service (crash) (CVE-2005-2800, moderate)

- - a flaw in 32-bit-compat handling of the TIOCGDEV ioctl that allowed
a local user to cause a denial of service (crash) (CVE-2005-3044, important)

- - a race condition when threads share memory mapping that allowed local
users to cause a denial of service (deadlock) (CVE-2005-3106, important)

- - a flaw when trying to mount a non-hfsplus filesystem using hfsplus that
allowed local users to cause a denial of service (crash) (CVE-2005-3109,
moderate)

- - a minor info leak with the get_thread_area() syscall that allowed
a local user to view uninitialized kernel stack data (CVE-2005-3276, low)

- - a flaw in mq_open system call that allowed a local user to cause a denial
of service (crash) (CVE-2005-3356, important)

- - a flaw in set_mempolicy that allowed a local user on some 64-bit
architectures to cause a denial of service (crash) (CVE-2005-3358, important)

- - a flaw in the auto-reap of child processes that allowed a local user to
cause a denial of service (crash) (CVE-2005-3784, important)

- - a flaw in the IPv6 flowlabel code that allowed a local user to cause a
denial of service (crash) (CVE-2005-3806, important)

- - a flaw in network ICMP processing that allowed a local user to cause
a denial of service (memory exhaustion) (CVE-2005-3848, important)

- - a flaw in file lease time-out handling that allowed a local user to cause
a denial of service (log file overflow) (CVE-2005-3857, moderate)

- - a flaw in network IPv6 xfrm handling that allowed a local user to
cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion) (CVE-2005-3858, important)

- - a flaw in procfs handling that allowed a local user to read kernel memory
(CVE-2005-4605, important)

All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 users are advised to upgrade their kernels
to the packages associated with their machine architectures and
configurations as listed in this erratum.
