     CVE-2005-0124
    
         Bryan Fulton reported a bounds checking bug in the coda_pioctl function

    The following matrix explains which kernel version for which architecture
    fix the problems mentioned above:
    
                                         Debian 3.0 (woody)
         Source                          2.4.16-1woody2
         arm/lart                        20040419woody1
         arm/netwinder                   20040419woody1
         arm/riscpc                      20040419woody1
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kernel package immediately and reboot
    the machine.
