                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           kernel22
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:039
Date:                   March 27th, 2003

Affected versions:      7.2, 8.1, 8.2, Single Network Firewall 7.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A number of vulnerabilities have been found in the Linux 2.2
 kernel that have been addressed with the latest 2.2.25 release.
 
 A bug in the kernel module loader code could allow a local user to 
 gain root privileges.  This is done by a local user using ptrace and 
 attaching to a modprobe process that is spawned if the user triggers 
 the loading of a kernel module.
 
 A temporary workaround can be used to defend against this flaw. It is 
 possible to temporarily disable the kmod kernel module loading 
 subsystem in the kernel after all of the required kernel modules have 
 been loaded.  Be sure that you do not need to load additional kernel 
 modules after implementing this workaround. To use it, as root execute:
 
   echo /no/such/file >/proc/sys/kernel/modprobe
 
 To automate this, you may wish to add it as the last line of the 
 /etc/rc.d/rc.local file.  You can revert this change by replacing the 
 content "/sbin/modprobe" in the /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe file.  The 
 root user can still manually load kernel modules with this workaround 
 in place.
 
 As well, multiple ethernet device drivers do not pad frames with null
 bytes, which could allow remote attackers to obtain information from 
 previous packets or kernel memory by using malformed packets.
 
 Finally, the 2.2 kernel allows local users to cause a crash of the host 
 system by using the mmap() function with a PROT_READ parameter to 
 access non-readable memory pages through the /proc/pid/mem interface.
 
 All users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest kernel version
 provided.
