    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-24 (Linux Kernel: Multiple information leaks) The Linux kernel allows a local attacker to obtain sensitive kernel information by gaining access to kernel memory via several leaks in the /proc interfaces. These vulnerabilities exist in various drivers which make up a working Linux kernel, some of which are present across all architectures and configurations. CAN-2004-0415 deals with addressing invalid 32 to 64 bit conversions in the kernel, as well as insecure direct access to file offset pointers in kernel code which can be modified by the open(...), lseek(...) and other core system I/O functions by an attacker. CAN-2004-0685 deals with certain USB drivers using uninitialized structures and then using the copy_to_user(...) kernel call to copy these structures. This may leak uninitialized kernel memory, which can contain sensitive information from user applications. Finally, a race condition with the /proc/.../cmdline node was found, allowing environment variables to be read while the process was still spawning. If the race is won, environment variables of the process, which might not be owned by the attacker, can be read. Impact : These vulnerabilities allow a local unprivileged attacker to access segments of kernel memory or environment variables which may contain sensitive information. Kernel memory may contain passwords, data transferred between processes and any memory which applications did not clear upon exiting as well as the kernel cache and kernel buffers. This information may be used to read sensitive data, open other attack vectors for further exploitation or cause a Denial of Service if the attacker can gain superuser access via the leaked information. Workaround : There is no temporary workaround for any of these information leaks other than totally disabling /proc support - otherwise, a kernel upgrade is required. A list of unaffected kernels is provided along with this announcement.

    description Updated kernel packages are now available as part of ongoing support and maintenance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 2.1. This is the sixth regular update. The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system. This is the sixth regular kernel update to Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 2.1. It updates a number of device drivers, and adds much improved SATA support. This update includes fixes for several security issues : Paul Starzetz of iSEC discovered various flaws in the ELF binary loader affecting kernels prior to 2.4.28. A local user could use these flaws to gain read access to executable-only binaries or possibly gain privileges. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2004-1070, CVE-2004-1071, CVE-2004-1072, and CVE-2004-1073 to these issues. A missing serialization flaw in unix_dgram_recvmsg was discovered that affects kernels prior to 2.4.28. A local user could potentially make use of a race condition in order to gain privileges. (CVE-2004-1068) Stefan Esser discovered various flaws including buffer overflows in the smbfs driver affecting kernels before 2.4.28. A local user may be able to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly gain privileges. In order to exploit these flaws the user would need to have control of a connected smb server. (CVE-2004-0883, CVE-2004-0949) Conectiva discovered flaws in certain USB drivers affecting kernels before 2.4.27 which used the copy_to_user function on uninitialized structures. These flaws could allow local users to read small amounts of kernel memory. (CVE-2004-0685) The ext3 code in kernels before 2.4.26 did not properly initialize journal descriptor blocks. A privileged local user could read portions of kernel memory. (CVE-2004-0177) The following drivers have also been updated : * tg3 v3.10 * e1000 v5.3.19-k2 * e100 v3.0.27-k2 * megaraid * megaraid2 v2.10.8.2 All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 users are advised to upgrade their kernels to the packages associated with their machine architectures and configurations as listed in this erratum.
