Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0013

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0013.

The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system.

These new kernel packages contain fixes for the security issues described

* a flaw in the ATM subsystem affecting systems with installed ATM hardware
and configured ATM support that allowed a remote user to cause a denial of
service (panic) by accessing socket buffer memory after it has been freed
(CVE-2006-4997, Moderate)

* a flaw in the DVD handling of the CDROM driver that could be used
together with a custom built USB device to gain root privileges
(CVE-2006-2935, Moderate)

In addition to the security issues described above, the following bugs are
also addressed:

* a potential overflow condition when reading /proc/devices
* uninitialized memory in cdrom_init() that can lead to a crash at install time
* a potential page corruption bug in /proc/kcore
* a race condition when reading vmalloc()ed regions via /proc/kcore

All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 users are advised to upgrade their kernels
to these updated packages, which contain backported fixes to correct these

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
