    This is three advisories in one, each for the same group of kernel 2.4.x vulnerabilities. The first is for the PA-RISC architecture, the second for the IA-64 architecture, and the third for the PowerPC/apus and S/390 architectures.

    Package        : kernel-image-2.4.17-hppa kernel-image-2.4.18-hppa
    Vulnerability  : several vulnerabilities
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0003 CAN-2004-0010 CAN-2004-0109 CAN-2004-0177 CAN-2004-0178
    
    Several serious problems have been discovered in the Linux kernel.
    This update takes care of Linux 2.4.17 and 2.4.18 for the hppa
    (PA-RISC) 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 will also be fixed by upstream in Linux 2.4.26 and
    future versions of 2.6.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 32.4 for Linux 2.4.17 and in version 62.3 for Linux 2.4.18.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kernel packages immediately, either
    with a Debian provided kernel or with a self compiled one.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
