    description A number of vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : The udp_v6_get_port function in udp.c, when running IPv6, allows local users to cause a Denial of Service (infinite loop and crash) (CVE-2005-2973). The mq_open system call in certain situations can decrement a counter twice as a result of multiple calls to the mntput function when the dentry_open function call fails, allowing a local user to cause a DoS (panic) via unspecified attack vectors (CVE-2005-3356). The procfs code allows attackers to read sensitive kernel memory via unspecified vectors in which a signed value is added to an unsigned value (CVE-2005-4605). A buffer overflow in sysctl allows local users to cause a DoS and possibly execute arbitrary code via a long string, which causes sysctl to write a zero byte outside the buffer (CVE-2005-4618). A buffer overflow in the CA-driver for TwinHan DST Frontend/Card allows local users to cause a DoS (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by reading more than eight bytes into an eight byte long array (CVE-2005-4639). dm-crypt does not clear a structure before it is freed, which leads to a memory disclosure that could allow local users to obtain sensitive information about a cryptographic key (CVE-2006-0095). Remote attackers can cause a DoS via unknown attack vectors related to an 'extra dst release when ip_options_echo fails' in icmp.c (CVE-2006-0454). In addition to these security fixes, other fixes have been included such as : - support for mptsas - fix for IPv6 with sis190 - a problem with the time progressing twice as fast - a fix for Audigy 2 ZS Video Editor sample rates - a fix for a supermount crash when accessing a supermount-ed CD/DVD drive - a fix for improperly unloading sbp2 module 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.mandriva.com/en/security/kernelupdate

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2004-0887 Martin Schwidefsky discovered that the privileged instruction SACF (Set Address Space Control Fast) on the S/390 platform is not handled properly, allowing for a local user to gain root privileges. - CVE-2004-1058 A race condition allows for a local user to read the environment variables of another process that is still spawning through /proc/.../cmdline. - CVE-2004-2607 A numeric casting discrepancy in sdla_xfer allows local users to read portions of kernel memory via a large len argument which is received as an int but cast to a short, preventing read loop from filling a buffer. - CVE-2005-0449 An error in the skb_checksum_help() function from the netfilter framework has been discovered that allows the bypass of packet filter rules or a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-1761 A vulnerability in the ptrace subsystem of the IA-64 architecture can allow local attackers to overwrite kernel memory and crash the kernel. - CVE-2005-2457 Tim Yamin discovered that insufficient input validation in the compressed ISO file system (zisofs) allows a denial of service attack through maliciously crafted ISO images. - CVE-2005-2555 Herbert Xu discovered that the setsockopt() function was not restricted to users/processes with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability. This allows attackers to manipulate IPSEC policies or initiate a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-2709 Al Viro discovered a race condition in the /proc handling of network devices. A (local) attacker could exploit the stale reference after interface shutdown to cause a denial of service or possibly execute code in kernel mode. - CVE-2005-2973 Tetsuo Handa discovered that the udp_v6_get_port() function from the IPv6 code can be forced into an endless loop, which allows a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-3257 Rudolf Polzer discovered that the kernel improperly restricts access to the KDSKBSENT ioctl, which can possibly lead to privilege escalation. - CVE-2005-3783 The ptrace code using CLONE_THREAD didn't use the thread group ID to determine whether the caller is attaching to itself, which allows a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-3806 Yen Zheng discovered that the IPv6 flow label code modified an incorrect variable, which could lead to memory corruption and denial of service. - CVE-2005-3848 Ollie Wild discovered a memory leak in the icmp_push_reply() function, which allows denial of service through memory consumption. - CVE-2005-3857 Chris Wright discovered that excessive allocation of broken file lock leases in the VFS layer can exhaust memory and fill up the system logging, which allows denial of service. - CVE-2005-3858 Patrick McHardy discovered a memory leak in the ip6_input_finish() function from the IPv6 code, which allows denial of service. - CVE-2005-4618 Yi Ying discovered that sysctl does not properly enforce the size of a buffer, which allows a denial of service attack.

    description Al Viro discovered a race condition in the /proc file handler of network devices. A local attacker could exploit this by opening any file in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf// and waiting until that interface was shut down. Under certain circumstances this could lead to a kernel crash or even arbitrary code execution with full kernel privileges. (CVE-2005-2709) Tetsuo Handa discovered a local Denial of Service vulnerability in the udp_v6_get_port() function. On computers which use IPv6, a local attacker could exploit this to trigger an infinite loop in the kernel. (CVE-2005-2973) Harald Welte discovered a Denial of Service vulnerability in the USB devio driver. A local attacker could exploit this by sending an 'USB Request Block' (URB) and terminating the sending process before the arrival of the answer, which left an invalid pointer and caused a kernel crash. (CVE-2005-3055) Pavel Roskin discovered an information leak in the Orinoco wireless card driver. When increasing the buffer length for storing data, the buffer was not padded with zeros, which exposed a random part of the system memory to the user. (CVE-2005-3180) A resource leak has been discovered in the handling of POSIX timers in the exec() function. This could be exploited to a Denial of Service attack by a group of local users. This vulnerability only affects Ubuntu 4.10. (CVE-2005-3271) Stephen Hemming discovered a weakness in the network bridge driver. Packets which had already been dropped by the packet filter could poison the forwarding table, which could be exploited to make the bridge forward spoofed packages. This vulnerability only affects Ubuntu 4.10 and 5.04. (CVE-2005-3272) David S. Miller discovered a buffer overflow in the rose_rt_ioctl() function. By calling the function with a large 'ngidis' argument, a local attacker could cause a kernel crash. This vulnerability only affects Ubuntu 4.10 and 5.04. (CVE-2005-3273) Neil Horman discovered a race condition in the connection timer handling. This allowed a local attacker to set up an expiration handler which modified the connection list while the list still being traversed, which could result in a kernel crash. This vulnerability only affects multiprocessor (SMP) systems. (CVE-2005-3274) Patrick McHardy noticed a logic error in the network address translation (NAT) connection tracker. A remote attacker could exploit this by causing two packets for the same protocol to be NATed at the same time, which resulted in a kernel crash. (CVE-2005-3275) Paolo Giarrusso discovered an information leak in the sys_get_thread_area(). The returned structure was not properly cleared, which exposed a small amount of kernel memory to userspace programs. This could possibly expose confidential data. (CVE-2005-3276). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

This allows attackers to manipulate IPSEC policies or initiate a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-2709 Al Viro discovered a race condition in the /proc handling of network devices. A (local) attacker could exploit the stale reference after interface shutdown to cause a denial of service or possibly execute code in kernel mode. - CVE-2005-2800 Jan Blunck discovered that repeated failed reads of /proc/scsi/sg/devices leak memory, which allows a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-2973 Tetsuo Handa discovered that the udp_v6_get_port() function from the IPv6 code can be forced into an endless loop, which allows a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-3044 Vasiliy Averin discovered that the reference counters from sockfd_put() and fput() can be forced into overlapping, which allows a denial of service attack through a NULL pointer dereference. - CVE-2005-3053 Eric Dumazet discovered that the set_mempolicy() system call accepts a negative value for its first argument, which triggers a BUG() assert. This allows a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-3055 Harald Welte discovered that if a process issues a USB Request Block (URB) to a device and terminates before the URB completes, a stale pointer would be dereferenced. This could be used to trigger a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-3180 Pavel Roskin discovered that the driver for Orinoco wireless cards clears its buffers insufficiently. This could leak sensitive information into user space. - CVE-2005-3181 Robert Derr discovered that the audit subsystem uses an incorrect function to free memory, which allows a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-3257 Rudolf Polzer discovered that the kernel improperly restricts access to the KDSKBSENT ioctl, which can possibly lead to privilege escalation. - CVE-2005-3356 Doug Chapman discovered that the mq_open syscall can be tricked into decrementing an internal counter twice, which allows a denial of service attack through a kernel panic. - CVE-2005-3358 Doug Chapman discovered that passing a zero bitmask to the set_mempolicy() system call leads to a kernel panic, which allows a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-3783 The ptrace code using CLONE_THREAD didn't use the thread group ID to determine whether the caller is attaching to itself, which allows a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-3784 The auto-reaping of child processes functionality included ptraced-attached processes, which allows denial of service through dangling references. - CVE-2005-3806 Yen Zheng discovered that the IPv6 flow label code modified an incorrect variable, which could lead to memory corruption and denial of service. - CVE-2005-3847 It was discovered that a threaded real-time process, which is currently dumping core can be forced into a dead-lock situation by sending it a SIGKILL signal, which allows a denial of service attack. - CVE-2005-3848 Ollie Wild discovered a memory leak in the icmp_push_reply() function, which allows denial of service through memory consumption. - CVE-2005-3857 Chris Wright discovered that excessive allocation of broken file lock leases in the VFS layer can exhaust memory and fill up the system logging, which allows denial of service. - CVE-2005-3858 Patrick McHardy discovered a memory leak in the ip6_input_finish() function from the IPv6 code, which allows denial of service. - CVE-2005-4605 Karl Janmar discovered that a signedness error in the procfs code can be exploited to read kernel memory, which may disclose sensitive information. - CVE-2005-4618 Yi Ying discovered that sysctl does not properly enforce the size of a buffer, which allows a denial of service attack. - CVE-2006-0095 Stefan Rompf discovered that dm_crypt does not clear an internal struct before freeing it, which might disclose sensitive information. - CVE-2006-0096 It was discovered that the SDLA driver's capability checks were too lax for firmware upgrades. - CVE-2006-0482 Ludovic Courtes discovered that get_compat_timespec() performs insufficient input sanitizing, which allows a local denial of service attack. - CVE-2006-1066 It was discovered that ptrace() on the ia64 architecture allows a local denial of service attack, when preemption is enabled.
