    description a. vMA and Service Console update for newt to 0.52.2-12.el5_4.1 Newt is a programming library for color text mode, widget based user interfaces. Newt can be used to add stacked windows, entry widgets, checkboxes, radio buttons, labels, plain text fields, scrollbars, etc., to text mode user interfaces. A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way newt processes content that is to be displayed in a text dialog box. A local attacker could issue a specially crafted text dialog box display request (direct or via a custom application), leading to a denial of service (application crash) or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the application using the newt library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2905 to this issue. b. vMA and Service Console update for vMA package nfs-utils to 1.0.9-42.el5 The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and related tools. It was discovered that nfs-utils did not use tcp_wrappers correctly. Certain hosts access rules defined in '/etc/hosts.allow' and '/etc/hosts.deny' may not have been honored, possibly allowing remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-4552 to this issue. c. vMA and Service Console package glib2 updated to 2.12.3-4.el5_3.1 GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis for projects such as GTK+ and GNOME. It provides data structure handling for C, portability wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as an event loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system. Multiple integer overflows in glib/gbase64.c in GLib before 2.20 allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long string that is converted either from or to a base64 representation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-4316 to this issue. d. vMA and Service Console update for openssl to 0.9.8e-12.el5 SSL is a toolkit implementing SSL v2/v3 and TLS protocols with full- strength cryptography world-wide. Multiple denial of service flaws were discovered in OpenSSL's DTLS implementation. A remote attacker could use these flaws to cause a DTLS server to use excessive amounts of memory, or crash on an invalid memory access or NULL pointer dereference. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-1377, CVE-2009-1378, CVE-2009-1379, CVE-2009-1386, CVE-2009-1387 to these issues. An input validation flaw was found in the handling of the BMPString and UniversalString ASN1 string types in OpenSSL's ASN1_STRING_print_ex() function. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted X.509 certificate that could cause applications using the affected function to crash when printing certificate contents. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0590 to this issue. e. vMA and Service Console package bind updated to 9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.1 It was discovered that BIND was incorrectly caching responses without performing proper DNSSEC validation, when those responses were received during the resolution of a recursive client query that requested DNSSEC records but indicated that checking should be disabled. A remote attacker could use this flaw to bypass the DNSSEC validation check and perform a cache poisoning attack if the target BIND server was receiving such client queries. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4022 to this issue. f. vMA and Service Console package expat updated to 1.95.8-8.3.el5_4.2. Two buffer over-read flaws were found in the way Expat handled malformed UTF-8 sequences when processing XML files. A specially- crafted XML file could cause applications using Expat to fail while parsing the file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-3560 and CVE-2009-3720 to these issues. g. vMA and Service Console package openssh update to 4.3p2-36.el5_4.2 A Red Hat specific patch used in the openssh packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 (RHSA-2009:1287) loosened certain ownership requirements for directories used as arguments for the ChrootDirectory configuration options. A malicious user that also has or previously had non-chroot shell access to a system could possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges and run commands as any system user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2904 to this issue. h. vMA and Service Console package ntp updated to ntp-4.2.2p1-9.el5_4.1.i386.rpm A flaw was discovered in the way ntpd handled certain malformed NTP packets. ntpd logged information about all such packets and replied with an NTP packet that was treated as malformed when received by another ntpd. A remote attacker could use this flaw to create an NTP packet reply loop between two ntpd servers through a malformed packet with a spoofed source IP address and port, causing ntpd on those servers to use excessive amounts of CPU time and fill disk space with log messages. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3563 to this issue. i. vMA update for package kernel to 2.6.18-164.9.1.el5 Updated vMA package kernel addresses the security issues listed below. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2849 to the security issue fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.2.1 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-2695, CVE-2009-2908, CVE-2009-3228, CVE-2009-3286, CVE-2009-3547, CVE-2009-3613 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.6.1 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-3612, CVE-2009-3620, CVE-2009-3621, CVE-2009-3726 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.9.1 j. vMA 4.0 updates for the packages kpartx, libvolume-id, device-mapper-multipath, fipscheck, dbus, dbus-libs, and ed kpartx updated to 0.4.7-23.el5_3.4, libvolume-id updated to 095-14.20.el5 device-mapper-multipath package updated to 0.4.7-23.el5_3.4, fipscheck updated to 1.0.3-1.el5, dbus updated to 1.1.2-12.el5, dbus-libs updated to 1.1.2-12.el5, and ed package updated to 0.2-39.el5_2. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2008-3916, CVE-2009-1189 and CVE-2009-0115 to these issues.

    description a. Service Console update for COS kernel Updated COS package 'kernel' addresses the security issues that are fixed through versions 2.6.18-164.11.1. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-2695, CVE-2009-2908, CVE-2009-3228, CVE-2009-3286, CVE-2009-3547, CVE-2009-3613 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.6.1 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-3612, CVE-2009-3620, CVE-2009-3621, CVE-2009-3726 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.9.1. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2007-4567, CVE-2009-4536, CVE-2009-4537, CVE-2009-4538 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.10.1 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2006-6304, CVE-2009-2910, CVE-2009-3080, CVE-2009-3556, CVE-2009-3889, CVE-2009-3939, CVE-2009-4020, CVE-2009-4021, CVE-2009-4138, CVE-2009-4141, and CVE-2009-4272 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.11.1. b. ESXi userworld update for ntp The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize the time of a computer client or server to another server or reference time source. A vulnerability in ntpd could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (CPU and bandwidth consumption) by using MODE_PRIVATE to send a spoofed (1) request or (2) response packet that triggers a continuous exchange of MODE_PRIVATE error responses between two NTP daemons. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3563 to this issue. c. Service Console package openssl updated to 0.9.8e-12.el5_4.1 OpenSSL is a toolkit implementing SSL v2/v3 and TLS protocols with full-strength cryptography world-wide. A memory leak in the zlib could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via vectors that trigger incorrect calls to the CRYPTO_cleanup_all_ex_data function. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4355 to this issue. A vulnerability was discovered which may allow remote attackers to spoof certificates by using MD2 design flaws to generate a hash collision in less than brute-force time. NOTE: the scope of this issue is currently limited because the amount of computation required is still large. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2409 to this issue. This update also includes security fixes that were first addressed in version openssl-0.9.8e-12.el5.i386.rpm. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-0590, CVE-2009-1377, CVE-2009-1378, CVE-2009-1379, CVE-2009-1386 and CVE-2009-1387 to these issues. d. Service Console update for krb5 to 1.6.1-36.el5_4.1 and pam_krb5 to 2.2.14-15. Kerberos is a network authentication protocol. It is designed to provide strong authentication for client/server applications by using secret-key cryptography. Multiple integer underflows in the AES and RC4 functionality in the crypto library could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code by providing ciphertext with a length that is too short to be valid. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4212 to this issue. The service console package for pam_krb5 is updated to version pam_krb5-2.2.14-15. This update fixes a flaw found in pam_krb5. In some non-default configurations (specifically, where pam_krb5 would be the first module to prompt for a password), a remote attacker could use this flaw to recognize valid usernames, which would aid a dictionary-based password guess attack. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-1384 to this issue. e. Service Console package bind updated to 9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Daemon) is by far the most widely used Domain Name System (DNS) software on the Internet. A vulnerability was discovered which could allow remote attacker to add the Authenticated Data (AD) flag to a forged NXDOMAIN response for an existing domain. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0097 to this issue. A vulnerability was discovered which could allow remote attackers to conduct DNS cache poisoning attacks by receiving a recursive client query and sending a response that contains CNAME or DNAME records, which do not have the intended validation before caching. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0290 to this issue. A vulnerability was found in the way that bind handles out-of- bailiwick data accompanying a secure response without re-fetching from the original source, which could allow remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted response. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0382 to this issue. NOTE: ESX does not use the BIND name service daemon by default. f. Service Console package gcc updated to 3.2.3-60 The GNU Compiler Collection includes front ends for C, C++, Objective-C, Fortran, Java, and Ada, as well as libraries for these languages GNU Libtool's ltdl.c attempts to open .la library files in the current working directory. This could allow a local user to gain privileges via a Trojan horse file. The GNU C Compiler collection (gcc) provided in ESX contains a statically linked version of the vulnerable code, and is being replaced. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3736 to this issue. g. Service Console package gzip update to 1.3.3-15.rhel3 gzip is a software application used for file compression An integer underflow in gzip's unlzw function on 64-bit platforms may allow a remote attacker to trigger an array index error leading to a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted LZW compressed file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0001 to this issue. h. Service Console package sudo updated to 1.6.9p17-6.el5_4 Sudo (su 'do') allows a system administrator to delegate authority to give certain users (or groups of users) the ability to run some (or all) commands as root or another user while providing an audit trail of the commands and their arguments. When a pseudo-command is enabled, sudo permits a match between the name of the pseudo-command and the name of an executable file in an arbitrary directory, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted executable file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0426 to this issue. When the runas_default option is used, sudo does not properly set group memberships, which allows local users to gain privileges via a sudo command. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0427 to this issue.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1548 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security fixes : * a system with SELinux enforced was more permissive in allowing local users in the unconfined_t domain to map low memory areas even if the mmap_min_addr restriction was enabled. This could aid in the local exploitation of NULL pointer dereference bugs. (CVE-2009-2695, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the eCryptfs implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-2908, Important) * a flaw was found in the NFSv4 implementation. The kernel would do an unnecessary permission check after creating a file. This check would usually fail and leave the file with the permission bits set to random values. Note: This is a server-side only issue. (CVE-2009-3286, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(), and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to update the pipe's reader and writer counters. This could lead to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3547, Important) * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. pci_unmap_single() presented a memory leak that could lead to IOMMU space exhaustion and a system crash. An attacker on the local network could abuse this flaw by using jumbo frames for large amounts of network traffic. (CVE-2009-3613, Important) * missing initialization flaws were found in the Linux kernel. Padding data in several core network structures was not initialized properly before being sent to user-space. These flaws could lead to information leaks. (CVE-2009-3228, Moderate) Bug fixes : * with network bonding in the 'balance-tlb' or 'balance-alb' mode, the primary setting for the primary slave device was lost when said device was brought down. Bringing the slave back up did not restore the primary setting. (BZ#517971) * some faulty serial device hardware caused systems running the kernel-xen kernel to take a very long time to boot. (BZ#524153) * a caching bug in nfs_readdir() may have caused NFS clients to see duplicate files or not see all files in a directory. (BZ#526960) * the RHSA-2009:1243 update removed the mpt_msi_enable option, preventing certain scripts from running. This update adds the option back. (BZ#526963) * an iptables rule with the recent module and a hit count value greater than the ip_pkt_list_tot parameter (the default is 20), did not have any effect over packets, as the hit count could not be reached. (BZ#527434) * a check has been added to the IPv4 code to make sure that rt is not NULL, to help prevent future bugs in functions that call ip_append_data() from being exploitable. (BZ#527436) * a kernel panic occurred in certain conditions after reconfiguring a tape drive's block size. (BZ#528133) * when using the Linux Virtual Server (LVS) in a master and backup configuration, and propagating active connections on the master to the backup, the connection timeout value on the backup was hard-coded to 180 seconds, meaning connection information on the backup was soon lost. This could prevent the successful failover of connections. The timeout value can now be set via 'ipvsadm --set'. (BZ#528645) * a bug in nfs4_do_open_expired() could have caused the reclaimer thread on an NFSv4 client to enter an infinite loop. (BZ#529162) * MSI interrupts may not have been delivered for r8169 based network cards that have MSI interrupts enabled. This bug only affected certain systems. (BZ#529366) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    title CentOS 5 : kernel (CESA-2009:1548)
  • NASL family Mandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL id MANDRIVA_MDVSA-2009-289.NASL
    description Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : The personality subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-rc3 has a PER_CLEAR_ON_SETID setting that does not clear the ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT and MMAP_PAGE_ZERO flags when executing a setuid or setgid program, which makes it easier for local users to leverage the details of memory usage to (1) conduct NULL pointer dereference attacks, (2) bypass the mmap_min_addr protection mechanism, or (3) defeat address space layout randomization (ASLR). (CVE-2009-1895) Stack-based buffer overflow in the parse_tag_11_packet function in fs/ecryptfs/keystore.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30.4 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges via vectors involving a crafted eCryptfs file, related to not ensuring that the key signature length in a Tag 11 packet is compatible with the key signature buffer size. (CVE-2009-2406) Heap-based buffer overflow in the parse_tag_3_packet function in fs/ecryptfs/keystore.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30.4 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges via vectors involving a crafted eCryptfs file, related to a large encrypted key size in a Tag 3 packet. (CVE-2009-2407) The d_delete function in fs/ecryptfs/inode.c in eCryptfs in the Linux kernel 2.6.31 allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel OOPS) and possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors that cause a negative dentry and trigger a NULL pointer dereference, as demonstrated via a Mutt temporary directory in an eCryptfs mount. (CVE-2009-2908) The kvm_emulate_hypercall function in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in KVM in the Linux kernel 2.6.25-rc1, and other versions before 2.6.31, when running on x86 systems, does not prevent access to MMU hypercalls from ring 0, which allows local guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest kernel crash) and read or write guest kernel memory via unspecified random addresses. (CVE-2009-3290) Additionaly, it includes the fixes from the stable kernel version 2.6.27.37. It also fixes also fixes IBM x3650 M2 hanging when using both network interfaces and Wake on Lan problems on r8169. For details, check the package changelog.

    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service, sensitive memory leak or privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2009-2846 Michael Buesch noticed a typing issue in the eisa-eeprom driver for the hppa architecture. Local users could exploit this issue to gain access to restricted memory. - CVE-2009-2847 Ulrich Drepper noticed an issue in the do_sigalstack routine on 64-bit systems. This issue allows local users to gain access to potentially sensitive memory on the kernel stack. - CVE-2009-2848 Eric Dumazet discovered an issue in the execve path, where the clear_child_tid variable was not being properly cleared. Local users could exploit this issue to cause a denial of service (memory corruption). - CVE-2009-2849 Neil Brown discovered an issue in the sysfs interface to md devices. When md arrays are not active, local users can exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service (oops). - CVE-2009-2903 Mark Smith discovered a memory leak in the appletalk implementation. When the appletalk and ipddp modules are loaded, but no ipddp'N' device is found, remote attackers can cause a denial of service by consuming large amounts of system memory. - CVE-2009-2908 Loic Minier discovered an issue in the eCryptfs filesystem. A local user can cause a denial of service (kernel oops) by causing a dentry value to go negative. - CVE-2009-2909 Arjan van de Ven discovered an issue in the AX.25 protocol implementation. A specially crafted call to setsockopt() can result in a denial of service (kernel oops). - CVE-2009-2910 Jan Beulich discovered the existence of a sensitive kernel memory leak. Systems running the 'amd64' kernel do not properly sanitize registers for 32-bit processes. - CVE-2009-3001 Jiri Slaby fixed a sensitive memory leak issue in the ANSI/IEEE 802.2 LLC implementation. This is not exploitable in the Debian lenny kernel as root privileges are required to exploit this issue. - CVE-2009-3002 Eric Dumazet fixed several sensitive memory leaks in the IrDA, X.25 PLP (Rose), NET/ROM, Acorn Econet/AUN, and Controller Area Network (CAN) implementations. Local users can exploit these issues to gain access to kernel memory. - CVE-2009-3228 Eric Dumazet reported an instance of uninitialized kernel memory in the network packet scheduler. Local users may be able to exploit this issue to read the contents of sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2009-3238 Linus Torvalds provided a change to the get_random_int() function to increase its randomness. - CVE-2009-3286 Eric Paris discovered an issue with the NFSv4 server implementation. When an O_EXCL create fails, files may be left with corrupted permissions, possibly granting unintentional privileges to other local users. - CVE-2009-3547 Earl Chew discovered a NULL pointer dereference issue in the pipe_rdwr_open function which can be used by local users to gain elevated privileges. - CVE-2009-3612 Jiri Pirko discovered a typo in the initialization of a structure in the netlink subsystem that may allow local users to gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2009-3613 Alistair Strachan reported an issue in the r8169 driver. Remote users can cause a denial of service (IOMMU space exhaustion and system crash) by transmitting a large amount of jumbo frames. - CVE-2009-3620 Ben Hutchings discovered an issue in the DRM manager for ATI Rage 128 graphics adapters. Local users may be able to exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference). - CVE-2009-3621 Tomoki Sekiyama discovered a deadlock condition in the UNIX domain socket implementation. Local users can exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service (system hang).

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2009-1548.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security fixes : * a system with SELinux enforced was more permissive in allowing local users in the unconfined_t domain to map low memory areas even if the mmap_min_addr restriction was enabled. This could aid in the local exploitation of NULL pointer dereference bugs. (CVE-2009-2695, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the eCryptfs implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-2908, Important) * a flaw was found in the NFSv4 implementation. The kernel would do an unnecessary permission check after creating a file. This check would usually fail and leave the file with the permission bits set to random values. Note: This is a server-side only issue. (CVE-2009-3286, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(), and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to update the pipe's reader and writer counters. This could lead to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3547, Important) * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. pci_unmap_single() presented a memory leak that could lead to IOMMU space exhaustion and a system crash. An attacker on the local network could abuse this flaw by using jumbo frames for large amounts of network traffic. (CVE-2009-3613, Important) * missing initialization flaws were found in the Linux kernel. Padding data in several core network structures was not initialized properly before being sent to user-space. These flaws could lead to information leaks. (CVE-2009-3228, Moderate) Bug fixes : * with network bonding in the 'balance-tlb' or 'balance-alb' mode, the primary setting for the primary slave device was lost when said device was brought down. Bringing the slave back up did not restore the primary setting. (BZ#517971) * some faulty serial device hardware caused systems running the kernel-xen kernel to take a very long time to boot. (BZ#524153) * a caching bug in nfs_readdir() may have caused NFS clients to see duplicate files or not see all files in a directory. (BZ#526960) * the RHSA-2009:1243 update removed the mpt_msi_enable option, preventing certain scripts from running. This update adds the option back. (BZ#526963) * an iptables rule with the recent module and a hit count value greater than the ip_pkt_list_tot parameter (the default is 20), did not have any effect over packets, as the hit count could not be reached. (BZ#527434) * a check has been added to the IPv4 code to make sure that rt is not NULL, to help prevent future bugs in functions that call ip_append_data() from being exploitable. (BZ#527436) * a kernel panic occurred in certain conditions after reconfiguring a tape drive's block size. (BZ#528133) * when using the Linux Virtual Server (LVS) in a master and backup configuration, and propagating active connections on the master to the backup, the connection timeout value on the backup was hard-coded to 180 seconds, meaning connection information on the backup was soon lost. This could prevent the successful failover of connections. The timeout value can now be set via 'ipvsadm --set'. (BZ#528645) * a bug in nfs4_do_open_expired() could have caused the reclaimer thread on an NFSv4 client to enter an infinite loop. (BZ#529162) * MSI interrupts may not have been delivered for r8169 based network cards that have MSI interrupts enabled. This bug only affected certain systems. (BZ#529366) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description Notice: Debian 5.0.4, the next point release of Debian 'lenny', will include a new default value for the mmap_min_addr tunable. This change will add an additional safeguard against a class of security vulnerabilities known as 'NULL pointer dereference' vulnerabilities, but it will need to be overridden when using certain applications. Additional information about this change, including instructions for making this change locally in advance of 5.0.4 (recommended), can be found at: https://wiki.debian.org/mmap_min_addr. Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service, sensitive memory leak or privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2009-2695 Eric Paris provided several fixes to increase the protection provided by the mmap_min_addr tunable against NULL pointer dereference vulnerabilities. - CVE-2009-2903 Mark Smith discovered a memory leak in the appletalk implementation.

Because of this there is no kernel-module-xfs for x86_64. Note4: ipw3945 support has been changed to iwlwifi3945 in SL 54, and is in the kernel. Because of this there is no kernel-module-ipw3945 for SL54. Note5: Support for the Atheros chipset in now in the kernel. We are not sure if the infrastructure is in place for SL 50-53, so we are still providing the madwifi kernel modules for SL 50-53.
