Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51347
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:845
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:845
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2004:845.

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

This announcement fixes the following vulnerabilities:

1. Local denial of service vulnerability (CVE-2004-0554[1])

Stian Skjelstad found[2] a vulnerability[1] in the fpu controller
code that can be used by local attackers to cause a denial of service
(DoS) on the system.

2. Local memory disclosure vulnerability (CVE-2004-0535[3])

Chris Wright found a vulnerability[3] in the Intel(R) PRO/1000
ethernet card driver that could allow a local attacker to read some
bytes of kernel memory.

3. Sparse vulnerabilities (CVE-2004-0495[4])

Al Viro, by using Sparse[5] (a code inspection tool), found several
vulnerabilities which, in the worst case, might allow local attackers
to obtain root privileges.


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