Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : kernel (MDVSA-2009:119)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 48145

Language:

New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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 exit_notify function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30-rc1 does not restrict exit signals when the CAP_KILL capability is held, which allows local users to send an arbitrary signal to a process by running a program that modifies the exit_signal field and then uses an exec system call to launch a setuid application.
(CVE-2009-1337)

The selinux_ip_postroute_iptables_compat function in security/selinux/hooks.c in the SELinux subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.22, and 2.6.28.x before 2.6.28.10, when compat_net is enabled, omits calls to avc_has_perm for the (1) node and (2) port, which allows local users to bypass intended restrictions on network traffic. NOTE: this was incorrectly reported as an issue fixed in 2.6.27.21. (CVE-2009-1184)

drivers/char/agp/generic.c in the agp subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30-rc3 does not zero out pages that may later be available to a user-space process, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading these pages. (CVE-2009-1192)

Integer overflow in rose_sendmsg (sys/net/af_rose.c) in the Linux kernel 2.6.24.4, and other versions before 2.6.30-rc1, might allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via a large length value, which causes garbage memory to be sent. (CVE-2009-1265)

To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at :
