---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-581
2005-01-03
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : kernel
Version : 2.6.9
Release : 1.11_FC2
Summary : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description :
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of any
Linux operating system. The kernel handles the basic functions
of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc.

A large change over previous kernels has been made. The 4G:4G memory
split patch has been dropped, and Fedora kernels now revert back to
the upstream 3G:1G kernel/userspace split.

A number of security fixes are present in this update.

CAN-2004-1016:
Paul Starzetz discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the "__scm_send"
function which handles the sending of UDP network packets. A wrong validity
check of the cmsghdr structure allowed a local attacker to modify kernel
memory, thus causing an endless loop (Denial of Service) or possibly even
root privilege escalation.

CAN-2004-1017:
Alan Cox reported two potential buffer overflows with the io_edgeport driver.

CAN-2004-1068:
A race condition was discovered in the handling of AF_UNIX network packets.
This reportedly allowed local users to modify arbitrary kernel memory,
facilitating privilege escalation, or possibly allowing code execution in the
context of the kernel.

CAN-2004-1137:
Paul Starzetz discovered several flaws in the IGMP handling code. This
allowed users to provoke a Denial of Service, read kernel memory, and execute
arbitrary code with root privileges. This flaw is also exploitable remotely
if an application has bound a multicast socket.

CAN-2004-1151:
Jeremy Fitzhardinge discovered two buffer overflows in the sys32_ni_syscall()
and sys32_vm86_warning() functions. This could possibly be exploited to
overwrite kernel memory with attacker-supplied code and cause root privilege
escalation.

NO-CAN-ASSIGNED:
- Fix memory leak in ip_conntrack_ftp (local DoS)
- Do not leak IP options. (local DoS)
- fix missing security_*() check in net/compat.c
- ia64/x86_64/s390 overlapping vma fix
- Fix bugs with SOCK_SEQPACKET AF_UNIX sockets
- Make sure VC resizing fits in s16.
Georgi Guninski reported a buffer overflow with vc_resize().
- Clear ebp on sysenter return.
A small information leak was found by Brad Spengler.
