SUSE-SA:2004:028: kernel

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kernel package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2004:028 (kernel).

Various signedness issues and integer overflows have been fixed within
kNFSd and the XDR decode functions of kernel 2.6.
These bugs can be triggered remotely by sending a package with a trusted
source IP address and a write request with a size greater then 2^31.
The result will be a kernel Oops, it is unknown if this bug is otherwise
exploitable yet.
Kernel 2.4 nfsd code is different but may suffer from the same
Additionally a local denial-of-service condition via /dev/ptmx, which
affects kernel 2.6 only has been fixed. Thanks to Jan Engelhardt for
reporting this issue to us.
