    Package        : kernel-source-2.4.17, kernel-patch-2.4.17-mips
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : local, remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CVE-2002-0429 CAN-2003-0001 CAN-2003-0127 CAN-2003-0244 CAN-2003-0246 CAN-2003-0247 CAN-2003-0248 CAN-2003-0364
    
    A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel.
    
    - CVE-2002-0429: The iBCS routines in arch/i386/kernel/traps.c for
      Linux kernels 2.4.18 and earlier on x86 systems allow local users to
      kill arbitrary processes via a a binary compatibility interface
      (lcall)
    
    - CAN-2003-0001: Multiple ethernet Network Interface Card (NIC) device
      drivers do not pad frames with null bytes, which allows remote
      attackers to obtain information from previous packets or kernel
      memory by using malformed packets
    
    - CAN-2003-0127: The kernel module loader allows local users to gain
      root privileges by using ptrace to attach to a child process that is
      spawned by the kernel
    
    - CAN-2003-0244: The route cache implementation in Linux 2.4, and the
      Netfilter IP conntrack module, allows remote attackers to cause a
      denial of service (CPU consumption) via packets with forged source
      addresses that cause a large number of hash table collisions related
      to the PREROUTING chain
    
    - CAN-2003-0246: The ioperm system call in Linux kernel 2.4.20 and
      earlier does not properly restrict privileges, which allows local
      users to gain read or write access to certain I/O ports.
    
    - CAN-2003-0247: vulnerability in the TTY layer of the Linux kernel
      2.4 allows attackers to cause a denial of service ("kernel oops")
    
    - CAN-2003-0248: The mxcsr code in Linux kernel 2.4 allows attackers
      to modify CPU state registers via a malformed address.
    
    - CAN-2003-0364: The TCP/IP fragment reassembly handling in the Linux
      kernel 2.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU
      consumption) via certain packets that cause a large number of hash
      table collisions
    
    This advisory provides corrected source code for Linux 2.4.17, and
    corrected binary kernel images for the mips and mipsel architectures.
    Other versions and architectures will be covered by separate
    advisories.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody), these problems have been fixed in
    kernel-source-2.4.17 version 2.4.17-1woody1 and
    kernel-patch-2.4.17-mips version 2.4.17-0.020226.2.woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems are fixed in
    kernel-source-2.4.20 version 2.4.20-8.
    
    We recommend that you update your kernel packages.
    
    NOTE: A system reboot will be required immediately after the upgrade
    in order to replace the running kernel.  Remember to read carefully
    and follow the instructions given during the kernel upgrade process.
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
