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

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.
