Technical Details:
Several local and remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2007-2172 Thomas Graf reported a typo in the IPV4 protocol handler that could be used by a local attacker to overrun an array via crafted packets, potentially resulting in a Denial of Service (system crash). The DECnet counterpart of this issue was already fixed in DSA-1356. CVE-2007-2875 iDefense reported a potential integer underflow in the cpuset filesystem which may permit local attackers to gain access to sensitive kernel memory. This vulnerability is only exploitable if the cpuset filesystem is mounted. CVE-2007-3105 The PaX Team discovered a potential buffer overflow in the random number generator which may permit local users to cause a denial of service or gain additional privileges. This issue is not believed to effect default Debian installations where only root has sufficient privileges to exploit it. CVE-2007-3843 A coding error in the CIFS subsystem permits the use of unsigned messages even if the client has been configured the system to enforce signing by passing the sec=ntlmv2i mount option. This may allow remote attackers to spoof CIFS network traffic. CVE-2007-4308 Alan Cox reported an issue in the aacraid driver that allows unprivileged local users to make ioctl calls which should be restricted to admin privileges. These problems have been fixed in the stable distribution in version 2.6.18.dfsg.1-13etch2. The following matrix lists additional Linux Distribution Packages that were rebuilt for compatibility with or to take advantage of this update: Debian 4.0 (etch) fai-kernels 1.17+etch5 user-mode-linux 2.6.18-1um-2etch4 We recommend that you upgrade your kernel Linux Distribution Package immediately and reboot

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update to linux-2.6 announced via advisory DSA 1363-1.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, you can scan concurrently as many assets as you want. Please note that you must be aware of the hardware requeriments of the platform to ensure a good performance.

No, you can add as many assest as you want. It doesn't matters if you have millions of assets, we won't charge you for that.

No. The software is completely free. We have no intention to charge you to use the software, in fact - it completely goes against our beliefs and business model.

A vulnerability is defined in the ISO 27002 standard as “A weakness of an asset or group of assets that can be exploited by one or more threats” (International Organization for Standardization, 2005)

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
