    Several serious problems have been discovered in the Linux kernel.
    This update takes care of Linux 2.4.17 for the MIPS architecture.  The
    Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
    problems that will be fixed with this update:
    
    CAN-2004-0003
    
        A vulnerability has been discovered in the R128 drive in the Linux
        kernel which could potentially lead an attacker to gain
        unauthorised privileges.  Alan Cox and Thomas Biege developed a
        correction for this
    
    CAN-2004-0010
    
        Arjan van de Ven discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the
        ncp_lookup function for ncpfs in the Linux kernel, which could
        lead an attacker to gain unauthorised privileges.  Petr Vandrovec
        developed a correction for this.
    
    CAN-2004-0109
    
        zen-parse discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the
        ISO9660 filesystem component of Linux kernel which could be abused
        by an attacker to gain unauthorised root access.  Sebastian
        Krahmer and Ernie Petrides developed a correction for this.
    
    CAN-2004-0177
    
        Solar Designer discovered an information leak in the ext3 code of
        Linux.  In a worst case an attacker could read sensitive data such
        as cryptographic keys which would otherwise never hit disk media.
        Theodore Ts'o developed a correction for this.
    
    CAN-2004-0178
    
        Andreas Kies discovered a denial of service condition in the Sound
        Blaster driver in Linux.  He also developed a correction for this.
    
    These problems are also fixed by upstream in Linux 2.4.26 and future
    versions of 2.6.
    
    The following security matrix explains which kernel versions for which
    architectures are already fixed and which will be removed instead.

    source         2.4.19-4.woody2           2.4.25-3           2.4.19-11

    We recommend that you upgrade your kernel packages immediately, either
    with a Debian provided kernel or with a self compiled one.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
