Debian Security Advisory DSA 470-1                                        Martin Schulze
April 1st, 2004

Package        : kernel-image-2.4.17-hppa
Vulnerability  : several vulnerabilities
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2003-0961 CAN-2003-0985 CAN-2004-0077

Several local root exploits have been discovered recently in the Linux
kernel.  This security advisory updates the mips kernel 2.4.19 for
Debian GNU/Linux.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems that are fixed with this update:


   An integer overflow in brk() system call (do_brk() function) for
   Linux allows a local attacker to gain root privileges.  Fixed
   upstream in Linux 2.4.23.


   Paul Starzetz discovered a flaw in bounds checking in mremap() in
   the Linux kernel (present in version 2.4.x and 2.6.x) which may
   allow a local attacker to gain root privileges.  Version 2.2 is not
   affected by this bug.  Fixed upstream in Linux 2.4.24.


   Paul Starzetz and Wojciech Purczynski of discovered a
   critical security vulnerability in the memory management code of
   Linux inside the mremap(2) system call.  Due to missing function
   return value check of internal functions a local attacker can gain
   root privileges.  Fixed upstream in Linux 2.4.25 and 2.6.3.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 32.3 of kernel-image-2.4.17-hppa.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.25-1 of kernel-image-2.4.25-hppa.

We recommend that you upgrade your Linux kernel packages immediately.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
