This patch is to correct the kernel hack that was the method used to break into the debian servers. It isn't just a Mandrake issue other kernels from other vendors are affected.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory _______________________________________________________________________ Package name:        kernel Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:110 Date:                December 1st, 2003 Affected versions:  9.0, 9.1, Corporate Server 2.1,    Multi Network Firewall 8.2 ______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: A vulnerability was discovered in the Linux kernel versions 2.4.22 and previous.  A flaw in bounds checking in the do_brk() function can allow a local attacker to gain root privileges.  This vulnerability is known to be exploitable; an exploit is in the wild at this time. The Mandrake Linux 9.2 kernels are not vulnerable to this problem as the fix for it is already present in those kernels. MandrakeSoft encourages all users to upgrade their systems immediately. _______________________________________________________________________ References:  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?n...e=CAN-2003-0961 ______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages:  Corporate Server 2.1: e512799c1f49de7b8bd488040d846a4e  corporate/2.1/RPMS/kernel- 7f6346a73ee412ad52c14d53ef1496e1  corporate/2.1/RPMS/kernel-enterprise- 410ec8ef4a8a201d09a4f7b1af45e7e0  corporate/2.1/RPMS/kernel-secure- 9b90933e07a60dd19f8ff6353cab6ca9  corporate/2.1/RPMS/kernel-smp- 8f70e81f007ba65a1347d4439a4986bb  corporate/2.1/RPMS/kernel-source-2.4.19-36mdk.i586.rpm e27ae3c8322b09e495a449fb1e8cf888  corporate/2.1/SRPMS/kernel- Corporate Server 2.1/x86_64: bd427eb5a5b278ac1a9d1e4834a3a6d4  x86_64/corporate/2.1/RPMS/kernel- 84ac3f2124e4fc8e06e0cceeb729e22d  x86_64/corporate/2.1/RPMS/kernel-secure- 4393ae3ce5da77908780cf24798eff5c  x86_64/corporate/2.1/RPMS/kernel-smp- 7d15239870981460adbe3e2c104c2227  x86_64/corporate/2.1/RPMS/kernel-source-2.4.19-33mdk.x86_64.rpm e27ae3c8322b09e495a449fb1e8cf888  x86_64/corporate/2.1/SRPMS/kernel- Mandrake Linux 9.0: e512799c1f49de7b8bd488040d846a4e  9.0/RPMS/kernel- 7f6346a73ee412ad52c14d53ef1496e1  9.0/RPMS/kernel-enterprise- 410ec8ef4a8a201d09a4f7b1af45e7e0  9.0/RPMS/kernel-secure- 9b90933e07a60dd19f8ff6353cab6ca9  9.0/RPMS/kernel-smp- 8f70e81f007ba65a1347d4439a4986bb  9.0/RPMS/kernel-source-2.4.19-36mdk.i586.rpm e27ae3c8322b09e495a449fb1e8cf888  9.0/SRPMS/kernel- Mandrake Linux 9.1: 964208c87454db75e46f6b2bfd683259  9.1/RPMS/kernel- e51755f9ae85de4c9a53bc7adfd66dff  9.1/RPMS/kernel-enterprise- 2d4486f9fc42f04b9bdd1b26e3b7cb9b  9.1/RPMS/kernel-secure- 9495cb84ae13cc39c56ff9b23f8a0906  9.1/RPMS/kernel-smp- f287612df3fda483f7616fb104fd4271  9.1/RPMS/kernel-source-2.4.21-0.26mdk.i586.rpm 6a907b3727b830957d63e1cbdbe03040  9.1/SRPMS/kernel- Mandrake Linux 9.1/PPC: abd53f2a5a6b68c61f731ff64ca40696  ppc/9.1/RPMS/kernel- 8e0058a02e938b4ae09a421f228a1dc2  ppc/9.1/RPMS/kernel-enterprise- ff686d8c8aab64c47f78454bbba6b295  ppc/9.1/RPMS/kernel-smp- b36bb2b6f9ae1fbc7223bf65767b16d4  ppc/9.1/RPMS/kernel-source-2.4.21-0.26mdk.ppc.rpm 6a907b3727b830957d63e1cbdbe03040  ppc/9.1/SRPMS/kernel- Multi Network Firewall 8.2: 045d50d5960e255a51bfd02041c1e67e  mnf8.2/RPMS/kernel-secure- e27ae3c8322b09e495a449fb1e8cf888  mnf8.2/SRPMS/kernel- _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi.  The verification of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
