Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:0326
The remote host is missing updates to the kernel announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:0326.

Security fixes:

* memory leaks were found on some error paths in the icmp_send()
function in the Linux kernel. This could, potentially, cause the network
connectivity to cease. (CVE-2009-0778, Important)

* Chris Evans reported a deficiency in the clone() system call when called
with the CLONE_PARENT flag. This flaw permits the caller (the parent
process) to indicate an arbitrary signal it wants to receive when its child
process exits. This could lead to a denial of service of the parent
process. (CVE-2009-0028, Moderate)

* an off-by-one underflow flaw was found in the eCryptfs subsystem. This
could potentially cause a local denial of service when the readlink()
function returned an error. (CVE-2009-0269, Moderate)

* a deficiency was found in the Remote BIOS Update (RBU) driver for Dell
systems. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of
service by reading zero bytes from the image_type or packet_size files in
/sys/devices/platform/dell_rbu/. (CVE-2009-0322, Moderate)

* an inverted logic flaw was found in the SysKonnect FDDI PCI adapter
driver, allowing driver statistics to be reset only when the CAP_NET_ADMIN
capability was absent (local, unprivileged users could reset driver
statistics). (CVE-2009-0675, Moderate)

* the sock_getsockopt() function in the Linux kernel did not properly
initialize a data structure that can be directly returned to user-space
when the getsockopt() function is called with SO_BSDCOMPAT optname set.
This flaw could possibly lead to memory disclosure.
(CVE-2009-0676, Moderate)

* the ext2 and ext3 file system code failed to properly handle corrupted
data structures, leading to a possible local denial of service when read
or write operations were performed on a specially-crafted file system.
(CVE-2008-3528, Low)

* a deficiency was found in the libATA implementation. This could,
potentially, lead to a local denial of service. Note: by default, the
/dev/sg* devices are accessible only to the root user.
(CVE-2008-5700, Low)

All users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for
this update to take effect.

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
