Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:226
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : kernel
Date : November 19, 2007
Affected: 2008.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux
2.6 kernel:

The minix filesystem code allows local users to cause a denial of
service (hang) via a malformed minix file stream (CVE-2006-6058).

An integer underflow in the Linux kernel prior to 2.6.23 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted SKB length
value in a runt IEEE 802.11 frame when the IEEE80211_STYPE_QOS_DATA
flag is set (CVE-2007-4997).

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