[DSA336] DSA-336-1 linux-kernel-2.2.20

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-336-1 linux-kernel-2.2.20

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel.
This advisory provides updated 2.2.20 kernel source, and binary kernel
images for the i386 architecture. Other architectures and kernel
versions will be covered by separate advisories.
For the stable distribution (woody) on the i386 architecture, these
problems have been fixed in kernel-source-2.2.20 version
2.2.20-5woody2 and kernel-image-i386 version 2.2.20-5woody3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems are fixed in
kernel-source-2.2.25 and kernel-image-2.2.25-i386 version 2.2.25-2.
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.
NOTE: These kernels are not binary-compatible with the previous
version. Any loadable modules will need to be recompiled in order to
work with the new kernel.
