openSUSE 10 Security Update : kernel (kernel-3128)

High Nessus Plugin ID 27294


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This kernel update fixes the following security problems :

- CVE-2007-1000 A NULL pointer dereference in the IPv6 sockopt handling can be used by local attackers to read arbitrary kernel memory and so gain access to private information.

- CVE-2007-1388 A NULL pointer dereference could be used by local attackers to cause a Oops / crash of the machine.

- CVE-2007-1592 A possible double free in the ipv6/flowlabel handling was fixed.

- CVE-2007-1357 A remote denial of service attack in the AppleTalk protocol handler was fixed. This attack is only possible on the local subnet, and requires the AppleTalk protocol module to be loaded (which is not done by default).
