Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2002-0068

Package name:      kernel
Summary:           New upstream version
Date:              2002-10-17
Affected versions: TSL 1.1, 1.2, 1.5

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Package description:
  The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of your
  Trustix Secure Linux operating system.  The kernel handles the basic
  functions of the operating system:  memory allocation, process allocation,
  device input and output, etc.

Problem description:
  From the upstream changelog:

  Security Fixes
        -Multiple numbers of potential sign handling, maths overflow and
        casting errors were fixed. Some of them are theoretically locally
        exploitable. No remote holes were found.

  In addition to this we have added support for more hardware.

Action:
  We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded.
