Several local and remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2004-0427

 A local denial of service vulnerability in do_fork() has been found.

CVE-2005-0489

 A local denial of service vulnerability in proc memory handling has
 been found.

CVE-2004-0394

 A buffer overflow in the panic handling code has been found.

CVE-2004-0447

 A local denial of service vulnerability through a null pointer
 dereference in the IA64 process handling code has been found.

CVE-2004-0554

 A local denial of service vulnerability through an infinite loop in
 the signal handler code has been found.

CVE-2004-0565

 An information leak in the context switch code has been found on
 the IA64 architecture.

CVE-2004-0685

 Unsafe use of copy_to_user in USB drivers may disclose sensitive
 information.

CVE-2005-0001

 A race condition in the i386 page fault handler may allow privilege
 escalation.

CVE-2004-0883

 Multiple vulnerabilities in the SMB filesystem code may allow denial
 of service of information disclosure.

CVE-2004-0949

 An information leak discovered in the SMB filesystem code.

CVE-2004-1016

 A local denial of service vulnerability has been found in the SCM layer.

CVE-2004-1333

 An integer overflow in the terminal code may allow a local denial of
 service vulnerability.

CVE-2004-0997

 A local privilege escalation in the MIPS assembly code has been found.

CVE-2004-1335

 A memory leak in the ip_options_get() function may lead to denial of
 service.

CVE-2004-1017

 Multiple overflows exist in the io_edgeport driver which might be usable
 as a denial of service attack vector.

CVE-2005-0124

 Bryan Fulton reported a bounds checking bug in the coda_pioctl function
 which may allow local users to execute arbitrary code or trigger a denial
 of service attack.

CVE-2005-0528

 A local privilege escalation in the mremap function has been found

CVE-2003-0984

 Inproper initialization of the RTC may disclose information.

CVE-2004-1070

 Insufficient input sanitising in the load_elf_binary() function may
 lead to privilege escalation.

CVE-2004-1071

 Incorrect error handling in the binfmt_elf loader may lead to privilege
 escalation.

CVE-2004-1072

 A buffer overflow in the binfmt_elf loader may lead to privilege
 escalation or denial of service.

CVE-2004-1073

 The open_exec function may disclose information.

CVE-2004-1074

 The binfmt code is vulnerable to denial of service through malformed
 a.out binaries.

CVE-2004-0138

 A denial of service vulnerability in the ELF loader has been found.

CVE-2004-1068

 A programming error in the unix_dgram_recvmsg() function may lead to
 privilege escalation.

CVE-2004-1234

 The ELF loader is vulnerable to denial of service through malformed
 binaries.

CVE-2005-0003

 Crafted ELF binaries may lead to privilege escalation, due to 
 insufficient checking of overlapping memory regions.

CVE-2004-1235

 A race condition in the load_elf_library() and binfmt_aout() functions
 may allow privilege escalation.

CVE-2005-0504

 An integer overflow in the Moxa driver may lead to privilege escalation.

CVE-2005-0384

 A remote denial of service vulnerability has been found in the PPP
 driver.

CVE-2005-0135

 An IA64 specific local denial of service vulnerability has been found
 in the unw_unwind_to_user() function.

The following matrix explains which kernel version for which architecture fix the problems mentioned above:

                                 Debian 3.0 (woody)
 Source                          2.4.19-4
 Sun Sparc architecture          26woody1
 Little endian MIPS architecture 0.020911.1.woody5

We recommend that you upgrade your kernel package immediately and reboot the machine.

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 dist-upgrade will install corrected packages

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

Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 alias woody
