 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDKSA-2006:123
 Package : kernel
 Date    : July 13, 2006
 Affected: 2006.0
 Problem Description:
 A number of vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux
 2.6 kernel:
 The kernel did not clear sockaddr_in.sin_zero before returning IPv4
 socket names for the getsockopt function, which could allow a local
 user to obtain portions of potentially sensitive memory if getsockopt()
 is called with SO_ORIGINAL_DST (CVE-2006-1343).
 Prior to 2.6.16, a buffer overflow in the USB Gadget RNDIS
 implementation could allow a remote attacker to cause a Denial of
 Service via a remote NDIS response (CVE-2006-1368).
 Prior to 2.6.13, local users could cause a Denial of Service (crash)
 via a dio transfer from the sg driver to memory mapped IO space
 Prior to and including 2.6.16, the kernel did not add the appropriate
 LSM file_permission hooks to the readv and writev functions, which
 could allow an attacker to bypass intended access restrictions
 Prior to, a buffer oveflow in SCTP could allow a remote
 attacker to cause a DoS (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code
 via a malformed HB-ACK chunk (CVE-2006-1857).
 Prior to, SCTP could allow a remote attacker to cause a DoS
 (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a chunk length that is
 inconsistent with the actual length of provided parameters
 Prior to, a memory leak in fs/locks.c could allow an attacker
 to cause a DoS (memory consumption) via unspecified actions
 Prior to, lease_init in fs/locks.c could allow an attacker to
 cause a DoS (fcntl_setlease lockup) via certain actions (CVE-2006-1860).
 Prior to 2.6.17, SCTP allowed remote attackers to cause a DoS (infinite
 recursion and crash) via a packet that contains two or more DATA
 fragments (CVE-2006-2274).
 Prior to, a race condition in run_posix_cpu timers could allow
 a local user to cause a DoS (BUG_ON crash) by causing one CPU to attach
 a timer to a process that is exiting (CVE-2006-2445).
 Prior to, xt_sctp in netfilter could allow an attacker to cause
 a DoS (infinite loop) via an SCTP chunk with a 0 length (CVE-2006-3085).
 As well, an issue where IPC could hit an unmapped vmalloc page when
 near the page boundary has been corrected.
 In addition to these security fixes, other fixes have been included
 such as:   
 - avoid automatic update of kernel-source without updating the kernel
 - fix USB EHCI handoff code, which made some machines hang while
 - disable USB_BANDWIDTH which corrects a known problem in some USB
   sound devices
 - fix a bluetooth refcounting bug which could hang the machine
 - fix a NULL pointer dereference in USB-Serial's serial_open()
 - add missing wakeup in pl2303 TIOCMIWAIT handling
 - fix a possible user-after-free in USB-Serial core
 - suspend/resume fixes
 - HPET timer fixes
 - prevent fixed button event to reach userspace on S3 resume
 - add sysfs support in ide-tape
 - fix ASUS P5S800 reboot
 Finally, a new drbd-utils package is provided that is a required
 upgrade with this new kernel due to a logic bug in the previously
 shipped version of drbd-utils that could cause a kernel panic on
 the master when a slave went offline.
 The provided packages are patched to fix these vulnerabilities.  All
 users are encouraged to upgrade to these updated kernels.
 To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at:
