Package : kernel-image-2.4.17-hppa kernel-image-2.4.18-hppa
Vulnerability : several vulnerabilities
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0003 CAN-2004-0010 CAN-2004-0109 CAN-2004-0177 CAN-2004-0178

Several serious problems have been discovered in the Linux kernel. This update takes care of Linux 2.4.17 and 2.4.18 for the hppa (PA-RISC) architecture. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems that will be fixed with this update:

CAN-2004-0003

A vulnerability has been discovered in the R128 drive in the Linux kernel which could potentially lead an attacker to gain unauthorised privileges. Alan Cox and Thomas Biege developed a correction for this

CAN-2004-0010

Arjan van de Ven discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the ncp_lookup function for ncpfs in the Linux kernel, which could lead an attacker to gain unauthorised privileges. Petr Vandrovec developed a correction for this.

CAN-2004-0109

zen-parse discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the ISO9660 filesystem component of Linux kernel which could be abused by an attacker to gain unauthorised root access. Sebastian Krahmer and Ernie Petrides developed a correction for this.

CAN-2004-0177

Solar Designer discovered an information leak in the ext3 code of Linux. In a worst case an attacker could read sensitive data such as cryptographic keys which would otherwise never hit disk media. Theodore Ts'o developed a correction for this.

CAN-2004-0178

Andreas Kies discovered a denial of service condition in the Sound Blaster driver in Linux. He also developed a correction for this.

These problems will also be fixed by upstream in Linux 2.4.26 and future versions of 2.6.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 32.4 for Linux 2.4.17 and in version 62.3 for Linux 2.4.18.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your kernel packages immediately, either with a Debian provided kernel or with a self compiled one.

Debian Security Advisory DSA 483-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
April 14th, 2004 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : mysql
Vulnerability : insecure temporary file creation
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CAN-2004-0381 CAN-2004-0388
Bugtraq ID : 9976

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in mysql, a common database system. Two scripts contained in the package don't create temporary files in a secure fashion. This could allow a local attacker to overwrite files with the privileges of the user invoking the MySQL server, which is often the root user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures identifies the following problems:

CAN-2004-0381

The script mysqlbug in MySQL allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack.

CAN-2004-0388

The script mysqld_multi in MySQL allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 3.23.49-8.6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed in version 4.0.18-6 of mysql-dfsg.

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql, mysql-dfsg and related packages.

Package : kernel-source-2.4.17 kernel-patch-2.4.17-apus kernel-patch-2.4.17-s390 kernel-image-2.4.17-s390
Vulnerability : several vulnerabilities
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0003 CAN-2004-0010 CAN-2004-0109 CAN-2004-0177 CAN-2004-0178

Several serious problems have been discovered in the Linux kernel. This update takes care of Linux 2.4.17 for the PowerPC/apus and S/390 architectures. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems that will be fixed with this update:

CAN-2004-0003

A vulnerability has been discovered in the R128 drive in the Linux kernel which could potentially lead an attacker to gain unauthorised privileges. Alan Cox and Thomas Biege developed a correction for this

CAN-2004-0010

Arjan van de Ven discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the ncp_lookup function for ncpfs in the Linux kernel, which could lead an attacker to gain unauthorised privileges. Petr Vandrovec developed a correction for this.

CAN-2004-0109

zen-parse discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the ISO9660 filesystem component of Linux kernel which could be abused by an attacker to gain unauthorised root access. Sebastian Krahmer and Ernie Petrides developed a correction for this.

CAN-2004-0177

Solar Designer discovered an information leak in the ext3 code of Linux. In a worst case an attacker could read sensitive data such as cryptographic keys which would otherwise never hit disk media. Theodore Ts'o developed a correction for this.

CAN-2004-0178

Andreas Kies discovered a denial of service condition in the Sound Blaster driver in Linux. He also developed a correction for this.

These problems will also be fixed by upstream in Linux 2.4.26 and future versions of 2.6.

The following security matrix explains which kernel versions for which architectures are already fixed.

Architecture stable (woody) unstable (sid)
source 2.4.17-1woody3 2.4.25-3
powerpc/apus 2.4.17-5 2.4.25-2
s390 2.4.17-2.woody.4 2.4.25-2 (and probably 2.4.21-3)

We recommend that you upgrade your kernel packages immediately, either with a Debian provided kernel or with a self compiled one.

Upgrade Instructions

Debian Security Advisory DSA 479-1 security@debian.org

Package : kernel-source-2.4.18 kernel-image-2.4.18-1-alpha kernel-image-2.4.18-1-i386 kernel-image-2.4.18-i386bf kernel-patch-2.4.18-powerpc
Vulnerability : several vulnerabilities
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0003 CAN-2004-0010 CAN-2004-0109 CAN-2004-0177 CAN-2004-0178

Several serious problems have been discovered in the Linux kernel. This update takes care of Linux 2.4.18 for the alpha, i386 and powerpc architectures. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems that will be fixed with this update:

CAN-2004-0003

A vulnerability has been discovered in the R128 drive in the Linux kernel which could potentially lead an attacker to gain unauthorised privileges. Alan Cox and Thomas Biege developed a correction for this

CAN-2004-0010

Arjan van de Ven discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the ncp_lookup function for ncpfs in the Linux kernel, which could lead an attacker to gain unauthorised privileges. Petr Vandrovec developed a correction for this.

CAN-2004-0109

zen-parse discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the ISO9660 filesystem component of Linux kernel which could be abused by an attacker to gain unauthorised root access. Sebastian Krahmer and Ernie Petrides developed a correction for this.

CAN-2004-0177

Solar Designer discovered an information leak in the ext3 code of Linux. In a worst case an attacker could read sensitive data such as cryptographic keys which would otherwise never hit disk media. Theodore Ts'o developed a correction for this.

CAN-2004-0178

Andreas Kies discovered a denial of service condition in the Sound Blaster driver in Linux. He also developed a correction.

These problems will also be fixed by upstream in Linux 2.4.26 and future versions of 2.6.

The following security matrix explains which kernel versions for which architecture are already fixed. Kernel images in the unstable Debian distribution (sid) will be fixed soon.

Architecture stable (woody) unstable (sid) removed in sid
source 2.4.18-14.3 2.4.25-3 --
alpha 2.4.18-15 soon --
i386 2.4.18-13 soon --
i386bf 2.4.18-5woody8 soon --
powerpc 2.4.18-1woody5 2.4.25-8 2.4.22

We recommend that you upgrade your kernel packages immediately, either with a Debian provided kernel or with a self compiled one.

Upgrade Instructions


wget url

will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb

will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for sources.list as given below:

apt-get update

will update the internal database apt-get upgrade

will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.

Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 alias woody
