1)  problem description, brief discussion, solution, upgrade information

    Multiple security vulnerabilities are being addressed with this security
    update of the Linux kernel.

    Kernel memory access vulnerabilities are fixed in the e1000, decnet, 
    acpi_asus, alsa, airo/WLAN, pss and mpu401 drivers. These 
    vulnerabilities can lead to kernel memory read access, write access 
    and local denial of service conditions, resulting in access to the 
    root account for an attacker with a local account on the affected 
    system.

    Missing Discretionary Access Control (DAC) checks in the chown(2) system
    call allow an attacker with a local account to change the group
    ownership of arbitrary files, which leads to root privileges on affected
    systems. It is specific to kernel version 2.6 based systems such as 
    the SUSE Linux 9.1 product, that only local shell access is needed to 
    exploit this vulnerability. An interesting variant of the missing 
    checks is that the ownership of files in the /proc filesystem can be 
    altered, while the changed ownership still does not allow the files to 
    be accessed as a non-root user for to be able to exploit the 
    vulnerability. Systems that are based on a version 2.4 kernel are not 
    vulnerable to the /proc weakness, and exploitation of the weakness 
    requires the use of the kernel NFS server (knfsd). If the knfsd NFS 
    server is not activated (it is off by default), the vulnerability is 
    not exposed. These issues related to the chown(2) system call have been 
    discovered by Michael Schroeder and Ruediger Oertel, both SUSE LINUX.

    The only network-related vulnerability fixed with the kernel updates
    that are subject to this announcement affect the SUSE Linux 9.1 
    distribution only, as it is based on a 2.6 kernel. Found and reported 
    to bugtraq by Adam Osuchowski and Tomasz Dubinski, the vulnerability 
    allows a remote attacker to send a specially crafted TCP packet to a 
    vulnerable system, causing that system to stall if it makes use of 
    TCP option matching netfilter rules.

    In some rare configurations of the SUSE Linux 9.1 distribution, some 
    users have experienced stalling systems during system startup. These 
    problems are fixed with this kernel update.



    SPECIAL INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:
    ==============================
    For the impatient: Run YOU (Yast2 Online Update, command 
    "yast2 online_update" as root) to install the updates (semi) 
    automatically, if you have a SUSE Linux 8.1 and newer system.

    For those who wish to install their kernel updates manually and for 
    those who use a SUSE Linux 8.0 system:

    The following paragraphs will guide you through the installation
    process in a step-by-step fashion. The character sequence "****"
    marks the beginning of a new paragraph. In some cases, the steps
    outlined in a particular paragraph may or may not be applicable
    to your situation.
    Therefore, please make sure to read through all of the steps below
    before attempting any of these procedures.
    All of the commands that need to be executed are required to be
    run as the superuser (root). Each step relies on the steps before
    it to complete successfully.


  **** Step 1: Determine the needed kernel type

    Please use the following command to find the kernel type that is
    installed on your system:

      rpm -qf /boot/vmlinuz

    Following are the possible kernel types (disregard the version and
    build number following the name separated by the "-" character)

      k_deflt   # default kernel, good for most systems.
      k_i386    # kernel for older processors and chipsets
      k_athlon  # kernel made specifically for AMD Athlon(tm) family processors
      k_psmp    # kernel for Pentium-I dual processor systems
      k_smp     # kernel for SMP systems (Pentium-II and above)
      k_smp4G   # kernel for SMP systems which supports a maximum of 4G of RAM
      kernel-64k-pagesize
      kernel-bigsmp
      kernel-default
      kernel-smp

  **** Step 2: Download the package for your system

    Please download the kernel RPM package for your distribution with the
    name as indicated by Step 1. The list of all kernel rpm packages is
    appended below. Note: The kernel-source package does not
    contain a binary kernel in bootable form. Instead, it contains the
    sources that the binary kernel rpm packages are created from. It can be
    used by administrators who have decided to build their own kernel.
    Since the kernel-source.rpm is an installable (compiled) package that
    contains sources for the linux kernel, it is not the source RPM for
    the kernel RPM binary packages.

    The kernel RPM binary packages for the distributions can be found at the
    locations below ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/update/.

      8.0/images/
      8.1/rpm/i586
      8.2/rpm/i586
      9.0/rpm/i586
      9.1/rpm/i586

    After downloading the kernel RPM package for your system, you should
    verify the authenticity of the kernel rpm package using the methods as
    listed in section 3) of each SUSE Security Announcement.


  **** Step 3: Installing your kernel rpm package

    Install the rpm package that you have downloaded in Steps 3 or 4 with
    the command
        rpm -Uhv --nodeps --force <K_FILE.RPM>
    where <K_FILE.RPM> is the name of the rpm package that you downloaded.

    Warning: After performing this step, your system will likely not be
             able to boot if the following steps have not been fully
             followed.


    If you run SUSE LINUX 8.1 and haven't applied the kernel update
    (SUSE-SA:2003:034), AND you are using the freeswan package, you also
    need to update the freeswan rpm as a dependency as offered
    by YOU (YaST Online Update). The package can be downloaded from
    ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/update/8.1/rpm/i586/

  **** Step 4: configuring and creating the initrd

    The initrd is a ramdisk that is loaded into the memory of your
    system together with the kernel boot image by the bootloader. The
    kernel uses the content of this ramdisk to execute commands that must
    be run before the kernel can mount its actual root filesystem. It is
    usually used to initialize SCSI drivers or NIC drivers for diskless
    operation.

    The variable INITRD_MODULES in /etc/sysconfig/kernel determines
    which kernel modules will be loaded in the initrd before the kernel
    has mounted its actual root filesystem. The variable should contain
    your SCSI adapter (if any) or filesystem driver modules.

    With the installation of the new kernel, the initrd has to be
    re-packed with the update kernel modules. Please run the command

      mk_initrd

    as root to create a new init ramdisk (initrd) for your system.
    On SuSE Linux 8.1 and later, this is done automatically when the
    RPM is installed.


  **** Step 5: bootloader

    If you run a SUSE LINUX 8.x, SLES8, or SUSE LINUX 9.x system, there
    are two options:
    Depending on your software configuration, you have either the lilo
    bootloader or the grub bootloader installed and initialized on your
    system.
    The grub bootloader does not require any further actions to be
    performed after the new kernel images have been moved in place by the
    rpm Update command.
    If you have a lilo bootloader installed and initialized, then the lilo
    program must be run as root. Use the command

      grep LOADER_TYPE /etc/sysconfig/bootloader

    to find out which boot loader is configured. If it is lilo, then you
    must run the lilo command as root. If grub is listed, then your system
    does not require any bootloader initialization.

    Warning: An improperly installed bootloader may render your system
             unbootable.

  **** Step 6: reboot

    If all of the steps above have been successfully completed on your
    system, then the new kernel including the kernel modules and the
    initrd should be ready to boot. The system needs to be rebooted for
    the changes to become active. Please make sure that all steps have
    completed, then reboot using the command
        shutdown -r now
    or
        init 6

    Your system should now shut down and reboot with the new kernel.


    There is no workaround known.


    Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its
    integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
    Then, install the package using the command "rpm -Fhv file.rpm" to apply
    the update.
    Our maintenance customers are being notified individually. The packages
    are being offered to install from the maintenance web.

    neon library (CAN-2004-0179, CAN-2004-0398). Update packages will be
    available soon.

    - cadaver
    The cadaver package includes a vulnerable version of the
    neon library (CAN-2004-0179, CAN-2004-0398). Update packages will be
    available soon.

    - OpenOffice_org
    The OpenOffice_org package includes a vulnerable version
    of the neon library (CAN-2004-0179, CAN-2004-0398). Update packages
    will be available soon.

    - tripwire
    A format string bug in tripwire can be exploited locally
    to gain root permissions.
    New packages are available.

    - postgresql
    A buffer overflow in psqlODBC could be exploited to crash the
    application using it. E.g. a PHP script that uses ODBC to access a
    PostgreSQL database can be utilized to crash the surrounding Apache
    web-server. Other parts of PostgreSQL are not affected.
    New packages are available.

    - XDM/XFree86
    This update resolves random listening to ports by XDM
    that allows to connect via the XDMCP. SUSE LINUX 9.1
    is affected only.
    New packages are available.

    - mod_proxy
    A buffer overflow can be triggered by malicious remote
    servers that return a negative Content-Length value.
    This vulnerability can be used to execute commands remotely
    New packages are available.

    - freeswan
    A bug in the certificate chain authentication code could allow an
    attacker to authenticate any host against a FreeS/WAN server by
    presenting specially crafted certificates wrapped in a PKCS#7 file.
    The packages are currently being tested and will be available soon.

    - ipsec-tools
    The racoon daemon which is responsible for handling IKE messages
    fails to reject invalid or self-signed X.509 certificates which
    allows for man-in-the-middle attacks on IPsec tunnels established
    via racoon.
    The packages are currently being tested and will be available soon.

    - less
    This update fixes a possible symlink attack in lessopen.sh. The
    attack can be executed by local users to overwrite arbitrary files
    with the privileges of the user running less.
    New packages are available.

    - libpng
    This update adds a missing fix for CAN-2002-1363.
    New packages are available.

    - pavuk
    This update fixes a remotely exploitable buffer overflow in pavuk.
    Thanks to Ulf Harnhammar for reporting this to us.
    New packages are available.

    - kdebase3
    This update fixes a possible attack on tmp files created at the
    first login of a user using KDE or at the first time running a
    KDE application. This bug can be exploited locally to overwrite
    arbitrary files with the privilege of the victim user.
    Just affects SUSE LINUX 9.1
    New packages are available.

3)  standard appendix: authenticity verification, additional information

  - Package authenticity verification:

    SUSE update packages are available on many mirror ftp servers around
    the world. While this service is considered valuable and important
    to the free and open source software community, many users wish to be
    certain as to be the origin of the package and its content before
    installing the package. There are two independent verification methods
    that can be used to prove the authenticity of a downloaded file or
    rpm package:
    1) md5sums as provided in the (cryptographically signed) announcement.
    2) using the internal gpg signatures of the rpm package.

    1) execute the command
        md5sum <name-of-the-file.rpm>
       after you have downloaded the file from a SUSE ftp server or its
       mirrors. Then, compare the resulting md5sum with the one that is
       listed in the announcement. Since the announcement containing the
       checksums is cryptographically signed (usually using the key
       security () suse de), the checksums offer proof of the authenticity
       of the package.
       We recommend against subscribing to security lists which cause the
       email message containing the announcement to be modified so that
       the signature does not match after transport through the mailing
       list software.
       Downsides: You must be able to verify the authenticity of the
       announcement in the first place. If RPM packages are being rebuilt
       and a new version of a package is published on the ftp server, all
       md5 sums for the files are useless.

    2) rpm package signatures provide an easy way to verify the authenticity
       of an rpm package. Use the command
        rpm -v --checksig <file.rpm>
       to verify the signature of the package, where <file.rpm> is the
       filename of the rpm package that you have downloaded. Of course,
       package authenticity verification can only target an un-installed rpm
       package file.
       Prerequisites:
        a) gpg is installed
        b) The package is signed using a certain key. The public part of this
           key must be installed by the gpg program in the directory
           ~/.gnupg/ under the user's home directory who performs the
           signature verification (usually root). You can import the key
           that is used by SUSE in rpm packages for SUSE Linux by saving
           this announcement to a file ("announcement.txt") and
           running the command (do "su -" to be root):
            gpg --batch; gpg < announcement.txt | gpg --import
           SUSE Linux distributions version 7.1 and thereafter install the
           key "build () suse de" upon installation or upgrade, provided that
           the package gpg is installed. The file containing the public key
           is placed at the top-level directory of the first CD (pubring.gpg)
           and at ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/pubring.gpg-build.suse.de .


  - SUSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may
    subscribe:
