Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60011
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 1428-2 (linux-2.6)
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing an update to linux-2.6
announced via advisory DSA 1428-2.

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:

This is an update to DSA 1428-1 which omitted a reference to CVE-2007-5904.

CVE-2007-3104

Eric Sandeen provided a backport of Tejun Heo's fix for a local denial
of service vulnerability in sysfs. Under memory pressure, a dentry
structure maybe reclaimed resulting in a bad pointer dereference causing
an oops during a readdir.

CVE-2007-4997

Chris Evans discovered an issue with certain drivers that make use of the
Linux kernel's ieee80211 layer. A remote user could generate a malicious
802.11 frame that could result in a denial of service (crash). The ipw2100
driver is known to be affected by this issue, while the ipw2200 is
believed not to be.

CVE-2007-5500

Scott James Remnant diagnosed a coding error in the implementation of
ptrace which could be used by a local user to cause the kernel to enter
an infinite loop.

CVE-2007-5904

Przemyslaw Wegrzyn discovered an issue in the CIFS filesystem that could
allow a malicious server to cause a denial of service (crash) by overflowing
a buffer.

These problems have been fixed in the stable distribution in version
2.6.18.dfsg.1-13etch5.

The following matrix lists additional packages that were rebuilt for
compatability with or to take advantage of this update:

Debian 4.0 (etch)
fai-kernels 1.17+etch.13etch5
user-mode-linux 2.6.18-1um-2etch.13etch5

We recommend that you upgrade your kernel package immediately and reboot
