SSA-2004-006-01 Kernel security update

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

New kernels are available for Slackware 9.0, 9.1 and -current.
The 9.1 and -current kernels have been upgraded to 2.4.24, and a
fix has been backported to the 2.4.21 kernels in Slackware 9.0
to fix a bounds-checking problem in the kernel's mremap() call
which could be used by a local attacker to gain root rights.
Sites should upgrade to the 2.4.24 kernel and kernel modules.
After installing the new kernel, be sure to run 'lilo'.
