Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : kernel (MDVSA-2008:246)

High Nessus Plugin ID 37874

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel :

The chip_command function in drivers/media/video/tvaudio.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.25.x before 2.6.25.19, 2.6.26.x before 2.6.26.7, and 2.6.27.x before 2.6.27.3 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL function pointer dereference and OOPS) via unknown vectors.
(CVE-2008-5033)

Stack-based buffer overflow in the hfs_cat_find_brec function in fs/hfs/catalog.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28-rc1 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or system crash) via an hfs filesystem image with an invalid catalog namelength field, a related issue to CVE-2008-4933. (CVE-2008-5025)

Additionally, added enhancements for a newer revision of Nokia models 6300, XpressMusic 5200, 5610 and 7610, the support for the ub USB module was disabled, added fixes for the Wake On LAN feature of the r8169 module, added fixes for suspend and resume on the i915 module, added ALSA fixes for Intel HDA, added workaround for a bug on iwlagn, added the m5602 driver, fixed a crash on the ppscsi module, added fixes to the uvcvideo module.
