Package        : kernel-image-2.4.16-lart, kernel-image-2.4.16-netwinder,  kernel-image-2.4.16-riscpc, kernel-patch-2.4.16-arm
Vulnerability  : several vulnerabilities
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2003-0961 CAN-2003-0985 CAN-2004-0077

Several local root exploits have been discovered recently in the Linux
kernel.  This security advisory updates the PowerPC/Apus kernel for
Debian GNU/Linux.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems that are fixed with this update:

CAN-2003-0961:

   An integer overflow in brk() system call (do_brk() function) for
   Linux allows a local attacker to gain root privileges.  Fixed
   upstream in Linux 2.4.23.

CAN-2003-0985:

   Paul Starzetz discovered a flaw in bounds checking in mremap() in
   the Linux kernel (present in version 2.4.x and 2.6.x) which may
   allow a local attacker to gain root privileges.  Version 2.2 is not
   affected by this bug.  Fixed upstream in Linux 2.4.24.

CAN-2004-0077:

   Paul Starzetz and Wojciech Purczynski of isec.pl discovered a
   critical security vulnerability in the memory management code of
   Linux inside the mremap(2) system call.  Due to missing function
   return value check of internal functions a local attacker can gain
   root privileges.  Fixed upstream in Linux 2.4.25 and 2.6.3.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.4.26/20040204 of lart, netwinder and riscpc image and in
version 20040204 of kernel-patch-2.4.16-arm.

Other architectures will probably mentioned in a separate advisory or
are not affected (m68k).

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your Linux kernel packages immediately.
