RHSA-2004-105: kernel

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kernel packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated kernel packages that fix a security vulnerability which may permit
local users to gain root rights are now available.

The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating
system.

This kernel updates several drivers and fixes a number of bugs, including a
potential security vulnerability.

iDefense reported a buffer overflow flaw in the ISO9660 filesystem code.
A possible hacker could create a malicious filesystem in such a way that root
rights may be obtained if the filesystem is mounted. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2004-0109 to this issue.

The following drivers were updated:

LSI megaraid2 v2.10.1.1
IBM Serveraid v. 6.11.07
MPT Fusion v.2.05.11.03

All users are advised to upgrade to these errata packages, which contain
a backported security patch that corrects this issue.
