Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2006-0040

Package names:     kernel
Summary:           Multiple vulnerabilities
Date:              2006-07-07
Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 3.0

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Package description:
  kernel
  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:
  kernel < TSL 3.0 >
  - New upstream.
  - SECURITY FIX: SCTP conntrack (ip_conntrack_proto_sctp.c) in
    netfilter allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
    (crash) via a packet without any chunks, which causes a variable
    to contain an invalid value that is later used to dereference a
    pointer.

    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
    has assigned the name CVE-2006-2934 to this issue.

Action:
  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.
