Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51326
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:799
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:799
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2004:799.

The Linux kernel is responsible for handling the basic functions of
the GNU/Linux operating system.

This announcement fixes two local vulnerabilities in the kernel
package:

1) mremap() local vulnerability (CVE-2003-0985[2])
Paul Starzetz from iSEC Security Research
reported[1] another vulnerability in the Linux memory management code
which can be used by local attackers to obtain root privileges or
cause a denial of service condition (DoS).

2) Information leak in RTC code (CVE-2003-0984[3])
Russell King reported that real time clock
(RTC) routines in Linux kernel 2.4.23 and earlier do not properly
initialize their structures, which could leak kernel data to user
space.


Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
