 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:044
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : kernel
 Date    : February 12, 2008
 Affected: 2008.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 The wait_task_stopped function in the Linux kernel before 2.6.23.8
 checks a TASK_TRACED bit instead of an exit_state value, which
 allows local users to cause a denial of service (machine crash) via
 unspecified vectors.  NOTE: some of these details are obtained from
 third party information. (CVE-2007-5500)
 
 The tcp_sacktag_write_queue function in the Linux kernel 2.6.21 through
 2.6.23.7 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
 via crafted ACK responses that trigger a NULL pointer dereference
 (CVE-2007-5501).
 
 The do_corefump function in fs/exec.c in the Linux kernel prior to
 2.6.24-rc3 did not change the UID of a core dump file if it exists
 before a root process creates a core dump in the same location, which
 could possibly allow local users to obtain sensitive information
 (CVE-2007-6206).
 
 VFS in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22.16 performed tests of access
 mode by using the flag variable instead of the acc_mode variable,
 which could possibly allow local users to bypass intended permissions
 and remove directories (CVE-2008-0001).
 
 The Linux kernel prior to 2.6.22.17, when using certain drivers
 that register a fault handler that does not perform range checks,
 allowed local users to access kernel memory via an out-of-range offset
 (CVE-2008-0007).
 
 A flaw in the vmsplice system call did not properly verify address
 arguments passed by user-space processes, which allowed local
 attackers to overwrite arbitrary kernel memory and gain root privileges
 (CVE-2008-0600).
 
 Mandriva urges all users to upgrade to these new kernels immediately
 as the CVE-2008-0600 flaw is being actively exploited.  This issue
 only affects 2.6.17 and newer Linux kernels, so neither Corporate
 3.0 nor Corporate 4.0 are affected.
 
 Additionally, this kernel updates the version from 2.6.22.12 to
 2.6.22.18 and fixes numerous other bugs, including:
 
   - fix freeze when ejecting a cm40x0 PCMCIA card
   - fix crash on unloading netrom
   - fixes alsa-related sound issues on Dell XPS M1210 and M1330 models
   - the HZ value was increased on the laptop kernel to increase
     interactivity and reduce latency
   - netfilter ipset, psd, and ifwlog support was re-enabled
   - unionfs was reverted to a working 1.4 branch that is less buggy
