    Package        : kernel-source-2.6.8 et. al.
    Vulnerability  : race condition
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-3625
    It was discovered that a race condition in the process filesystem can lead
    to privilege escalation.
    The following matrix explains which kernel version for which architecture
    fixes the problem mentioned above:
                                     Debian 3.1 (sarge)
         Source                      2.6.8-16sarge4
         Alpha architecture          2.6.8-16sarge4
         AMD64 architecture          2.6.8-16sarge4
         Intel IA-32 architecture    2.6.8-16sarge4
         Intel IA-64 architecture    2.6.8-14sarge4
         PowerPC architecture        2.6.8-12sarge4
         Sun Sparc architecture      2.6.8-15sarge4
    As an exploit for this issue in the wild, this advisory was sent out without
    builds for the IBM S/390, Motorola 680x0 and HP Precision architectures being
    available. They will be released in a followup-advisory as soon as they
    are available. Also, the kernels for the FAI installer haven't been updated
    yet. As a workaround we recommend to mount proc with the nosuid and noexec
    We recommend that you upgrade your kernel package immediately and reboot
    the machine. If you have built a custom kernel from the kernel source
    package, you will need to rebuild to take advantage of these fixes.
    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.
