    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200407-02 (Linux Kernel: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple flaws have been discovered in the Linux kernel. This advisory corrects the following issues: CAN-2004-0109: This vulnerability allows privilege escalation using ISO9660 file systems through a buffer overflow via a malformed file system containing a long symbolic link entry. This can allow arbitrary code execution at kernel level. CAN-2004-0133: The XFS file system in 2.4 series kernels has an information leak by which data in the memory can be written to the device hosting the file system, allowing users to obtain portions of kernel memory by reading the raw block device. CAN-2004-0177: The ext3 file system in 2.4 series kernels does not properly initialize journal descriptor blocks, causing an information leak by which data in the memory can be written to the device hosting the file system, allowing users to obtain portions of kernel memory by reading the raw device. CAN-2004-0181: The JFS file system in 2.4 series kernels has an information leak by which data in the memory can be written to the device hosting the file system, allowing users to obtain portions of kernel memory by reading the raw device. CAN-2004-0178: The OSS Sound Blaster [R] Driver has a Denial of Service vulnerability since it does not handle certain sample sizes properly. This allows local users to hang the kernel. CAN-2004-0228: Due to an integer signedness error in the CPUFreq /proc handler code in 2.6 series Linux kernels, local users can escalate their privileges. CAN-2004-0229: The framebuffer driver in 2.6 series kernel drivers does not use the fb_copy_cmap method of copying structures. The impact of this issue is unknown, however. CAN-2004-0394: A buffer overflow in the panic() function of 2.4 series Linux kernels exists, but it may not be exploitable under normal circumstances due to its functionality. CAN-2004-0427: The do_fork() function in both 2.4 and 2.6 series Linux kernels does not properly decrement the mm_count counter when an error occurs, triggering a memory leak that allows local users to cause a Denial of Service by exhausting other applications of memory; causing the kernel to panic or to kill services. CAN-2004-0495: Multiple vulnerabilities found by the Sparse source checker in the kernel allow local users to escalate their privileges or gain access to kernel memory. CAN-2004-0535: The e1000 NIC driver does not properly initialize memory structures before using them, allowing users to read kernel memory. CAN-2004-0554: 2.4 and 2.6 series kernels running on an x86 or an AMD64 architecture allow local users to cause a Denial of Service by a total system hang, due to an infinite loop that triggers a signal handler with a certain sequence of fsave and frstor instructions. Local DoS in PaX: If ASLR is enabled as a GRSecurity PaX feature, a Denial of Service can be achieved by putting the kernel into an infinite loop. Only 2.6 series GRSecurity kernels are affected by this issue. RSBAC 1.2.3 JAIL issues: A flaw in the RSBAC JAIL implementation allows suid/sgid files to be created inside the jail since the relevant module does not check the corresponding mode values. This can allow privilege escalation inside the jail. Only rsbac-(dev-)sources are affected by this issue. Impact : Arbitrary code with normal non-super-user privileges may be able to exploit any of these vulnerabilities; gaining kernel level access to memory structures and hardware devices. This may be used for further exploitation of the system, to leak sensitive data or to cause a Denial of Service on the affected kernel. Workaround : Although users may not be affected by certain vulnerabilities, all kernels are affected by the CAN-2004-0394, CAN-2004-0427 and CAN-2004-0554 issues which have no workaround. As a result, all users are urged to upgrade their kernels to patched versions.

    description A memory leak was fixed in an error path in the do_fork() routine. This was unlikely to have caused problems in real world situations. The information leak fixed in the previous errata was also found to affect XFS and JFS. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) assigned the names CVE-2004-0133 and CVE-2004-0181 respectively. A vulnerability in the OSS code for SoundBlaster 16 devices was discovered by Andreas Kies. It is possible for local users with access to the sound system to crash the machine (CVE-2004-0178). An automated checked from http://www.coverity.com highlighted a range checking bug in the i810 DRM driver. This was fixed by Andrea Arcangeli and Chris Wright. Arjan van de Ven discovered the framebuffer code was doing direct userspace accesses instead of using correct interfaces to write to userspace. Brad Spengler found a signedness issue in the cpufreq proc handler which could lead to users being able to read arbitary regions of kernel memory. This was fixed by Dominik Brodowski. Shaun Colley found a potential buffer overrun in the panic() function. As this function does not ever return, it is unlikely that this is exploitable, but has been fixed nonetheless. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) assigned the name CVE-2004-0394 to this issue. Paul Starzetz and Wojciech Purczynski found a lack of bounds checking in the MCAST_MSFILTER socket option which allows user code to write into kernel space, potentially giving the attacker full root priveledges. There has already been proof of concept code published exploiting this hole in a local denial-of-service manner. http://www.isec.pl/vulnerabilities/isec-0015-msfilter.txt has more information. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) assigned the name CVE-2004-0424 to this issue. The previous security errata actually missed fixes for several important problems. This has been corrected in this update. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 are now available. The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system. Paul Starzetz discovered flaws in the Linux kernel when handling file offset pointers. These consist of invalid conversions of 64 to 32-bit file offset pointers and possible race conditions. A local unprivileged user could make use of these flaws to access large portions of kernel memory. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0415 to this issue. These packages contain a patch written by Al Viro to correct these flaws. Red Hat would like to thank iSEC Security Research for disclosing this issue and a number of vendor-sec participants for reviewing and working on the patch to this issue. In addition, these packages correct a number of minor security issues : An bug in the e1000 network driver. This bug could be used by local users to leak small amounts of kernel memory (CVE-2004-0535). A bug in the SoundBlaster 16 code which does not properly handle certain sample sizes. This flaw could be used by local users to crash a system (CVE-2004-0178). A possible NULL pointer dereference in the Linux kernel prior to 2.4.26 on the Itanium platform could allow a local user to crash a system (CVE-2004-0447). Inappropriate permissions on /proc/scsi/qla2300/HbaApiNode (CVE-2004-0587). 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.

    description A vulnerability was found in the R128 DRI driver by Alan Cox. This could allow local privilege escalation. The previous fix, in MDKSA-2004:015 only partially corrected the problem; the full fix is included (CVE-2004-0003). A local root vulnerability was discovered in the isofs component of the Linux kernel by iDefense. This vulnerability can be triggered by performing a directory listing on a maliciously constructed ISO filesystem, or attempting to access a file via a malformed symlink on such a filesystem (CVE-2004-0109). An information leak was discovered in the ext3 filesystem code by Solar Designer. It was discovered that when creating or writing to an ext3 filesystem, some amount of other in-memory data gets written to the device. The data is not the file's contents, not something on the same filesystem, or even anything that was previously in a file at all. To obtain this data, a user needs to read the raw device (CVE-2004-0177). The same vulnerability was also found in the XFS filesystem code (CVE-2004-0133) and the JFS filesystem code (CVE-2004-0181). Finally, a vulnerability in the OSS code for SoundBlaster 16 devices was discovered by Andreas Kies. It is possible for local users with access to the sound system to crash the machine (CVE-2004-0178). 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 : http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/kernelupdate.php
