Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA276] DSA-276-1 linux-kernel-s390

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-276-1 linux-kernel-s390

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The kernel module loader in Linux 2.2 and Linux 2.4 kernels has a flaw
in ptrace. This hole permits local users to obtain root rights by
using ptrace to attach to a child process that is spawned by the
kernel. Remote exploitation of this hole is not possible.
This advisory only covers kernel packages for the S/390 architecture.
Other architectures will be covered by separate advisories.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in the
following versions:
The old stable distribution (potato) is not affected by this problem
for this architecture since s390 was first released with Debian
GNU/Linux 3.0 (woody).
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your kernel-images packages immediately.
