Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.53013
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-137-1 (linux-source-2.6.8.1)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-137-1 (linux-source-2.6.8.1)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to linux-source-2.6.8.1
announced via advisory USN-137-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

Alexander Nyberg discovered that ptrace() insufficiently validated
addresses on the amd64 platform so that it was possible to set an
invalid segment base. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the
kernel. This does not affect the i386 and powerpc platforms in any
way. (CVE-2005-0756)

Chris Wright discovered that the mmap() function could create illegal
memory maps (using the mmap function) with the start address
pointing beyond the end address. A local user could exploit this to
crash the kernel or possibly even execute arbitrary code with kernel
privileges. (CVE-2005-1265)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.6.8.1-16.19 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 2.6.10-34.2 (for Ubuntu
5.04). After doing a standard system upgrade you need to reboot your
computer to effect the necessary changes.
