Package name:      kernel
Summary:           Local hole, remote DoS
Date:              2004-01-19
Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.0
                   Trustix Secure Linux 2.1

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:
  Problem 1:
  Paul Starzetz discovered a bug in the IGMP networking modules of the
  Linux kernel.  This allows for a remote DoS and local root exploit.

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
  assigned the name CAN-2004-1137 to this issue.

  Problem 2:
  Paul Starzetz discovered a bug in the socket API of the Linux kernel.
  This allows for a local DoS.

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
  assigned the name CAN-2004-1016 to this issue.

  We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded.
  Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this
  package, you may want to remove it from your system.
