Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.61436
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 1630-1 (linux-2.6)
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing an update to linux-2.6
announced via advisory DSA 1630-1.

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may
lead to a denial of service or arbitrary code execution. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problems:

CVE-2007-6282

Dirk Nehring discovered a vulnerability in the IPsec code that allows
remote users to cause a denial of service by sending a specially crafted
ESP packet.

CVE-2008-0598

Tavis Ormandy discovered a vulnerability that allows local users to access
uninitialized kernel memory, possibly leaking sensitive data. This issue
is specific to the amd64-flavour kernel images.

CVE-2008-2729

Andi Kleen discovered an issue where uninitialized kernel memory
was being leaked to userspace during an exception. This issue may allow
local users to gain access to sensitive data. Only the amd64-flavour
Debian kernel images are affected.

CVE-2008-2812

Alan Cox discovered an issue in multiple tty drivers that allows
local users to trigger a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference)
and possibly obtain elevated privileges.

CVE-2008-2826

Gabriel Campana discovered an integer overflow in the sctp code that
can be exploited by local users to cause a denial of service.

CVE-2008-2931

Miklos Szeredi reported a missing privilege check in the do_change_type()
function. This allows local, unprivileged users to change the properties
of mount points.

CVE-2008-3272

Tobias Klein reported a locally exploitable data leak in the
snd_seq_oss_synth_make_info() function. This may allow local users
to gain access to sensitive information.

CVE-2008-3275

Zoltan Sogor discovered a coding error in the VFS that allows local users
to exploit a kernel memory leak resulting in a denial of service.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6.18.dfsg.1-22etch2.

We recommend that you upgrade your linux-2.6, fai-kernels, and
