USN-661-1: Linux kernel regression
Posted on: 10/30/2008 07:00 PM

A new Linux kernel regression update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-661-1 October 30, 2008
linux regression
https://launchpad.net/bugs/264019
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.10:
linux-image-2.6.27-7-generic 2.6.27-7.15
linux-image-2.6.27-7-server 2.6.27-7.15
linux-image-2.6.27-7-virtual 2.6.27-7.15
procps 1:3.2.7-9ubuntu2.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to reboot your computer to
effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Version 2.6.27 of the Linux kernel changed the order of options in
TCP headers. While this change was RFC-compliant, it was found that
some old routers and consumer DSL modems would not route traffic for
these systems when TCP timestamps were enabled. As a workaround, TCP
timestamps were disabled via sysctl.

This update restores the previous ordering of TCP options, and
reenables TCP timestamps. We apologize for the inconvenience.


Updated packages for Ubuntu 8.10:
