Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-332-1 linux-kernel-2.4.17

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel.
This advisory provides corrected source code for Linux 2.4.17, and
corrected binary kernel images for the mips and mipsel architectures.
Other versions and architectures will be covered by separate
advisories.
For the stable distribution (woody), these problems have been fixed in
kernel-source-2.4.17 version 2.4.17-1woody1 and
kernel-patch-2.4.17-mips version 2.4.17-0.020226.2.woody2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems are fixed in

We recommend that you update your kernel packages.
NOTE: A system reboot will be required immediately after the upgrade
in order to replace the running kernel. Remember to read carefully
and follow the instructions given during the kernel upgrade process.
