[DSA1082] DSA-1082-1 kernel-source-2.4.17

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1082-1 kernel-source-2.4.17

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several local and remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux
kernel that may lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary
code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following problems:
A local denial of service vulnerability in do_fork() has been found.
A local denial of service vulnerability in proc memory handling has
been found.
A buffer overflow in the panic handling code has been found.
A local denial of service vulnerability through a null pointer
dereference in the IA64 process handling code has been found.
A local denial of service vulnerability through an infinite loop in
the signal handler code has been found.
An information leak in the context switch code has been found on
the IA64 architecture.
Unsafe use of copy_to_user in USB drivers may disclose sensitive
information.
A race condition in the i386 page fault handler may permit privilege
escalation.
Multiple vulnerabilities in the SMB filesystem code may permit denial
of service or information disclosure.
An information leak discovered in the SMB filesystem code.
A local denial of service vulnerability has been found in the SCM layer.
An integer overflow in the terminal code may permit a local denial of
service vulnerability.
A local privilege escalation in the MIPS assembly code has been found.
A memory leak in the ip_options_get() function may lead to denial of
service.
Multiple overflows exist in the io_edgeport driver which might be usable
as a denial of service attack vector.
Bryan Fulton reported a bounds checking bug in the coda_pioctl function
which may permit local users to execute arbitrary code or trigger a denial
of service attack.
Inproper initialization of the RTC may disclose information.
Insufficient input sanitising in the load_elf_binary() function may
lead to privilege escalation.
Incorrect error handling in the binfmt_elf loader may lead to privilege
escalation.
A buffer overflow in the binfmt_elf loader may lead to privilege
escalation or denial of service.
The open_exec function may disclose information.
The binfmt code is vulnerable to denial of service through malformed
a.out binaries.
A denial of service vulnerability in the ELF loader has been found.
A programming error in the unix_dgram_recvmsg() function may lead to
privilege escalation.
The ELF loader is vulnerable to denial of service through malformed
binaries.
Crafted ELF binaries may lead to privilege escalation, due to
insufficient checking of overlapping memory regions.
A race condition in the load_elf_library() and binfmt_aout() functions
may permit privilege escalation.
An integer overflow in the Moxa driver may lead to privilege escalation.
A remote denial of service vulnerability has been found in the PPP
driver.
An IA64 specific local denial of service vulnerability has been found
in the
