Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA480] DSA-480-1 linux-kernel-2.4.17+2.4.18-hppa

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-480-1 linux-kernel-2.4.17+2.4.18-hppa

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several serious problems have been discovered in the Linux kernel.
This update takes care of Linux 2.4.17 and 2.4.18 for the hppa
(PA-RISC) architecture. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems that will be fixed with this
update:
A vulnerability has been discovered in the R128 DRI driver in the Linux
kernel which could potentially lead a possible hacker to gain
unauthorised rights. Alan Cox and Thomas Biege developed a
correction for this.
Arjan van de Ven discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the
ncp_lookup function for ncpfs in the Linux kernel, which could
lead a possible hacker to gain unauthorised rights. Petr Vandrovec
developed a correction for this.
zen-parse discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the
ISO9660 filesystem component of Linux kernel which could be abused
by a possible hacker to gain unauthorised root access. Sebastian
Krahmer and Ernie Petrides developed a correction for this.
Solar Designer discovered an information leak in the ext3 code of
Linux. In a worst case a possible hacker could read sensitive data such
as cryptographic keys which would otherwise never hit disk media.
Theodore Ts'o developed a correction for this.
Andreas Kies discovered a denial of service condition in the Sound
Blaster driver in Linux. He also developed a correction for this.
These problems are also fixed by upstream in Linux 2.4.26 and will be
fixed in Linux 2.6.6.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 32.4 for Linux 2.4.17 and in version 62.3 for Linux 2.4.18.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your kernel packages immediately, either
with a Debian provided kernel or with a self compiled one.
