This can be exploited by local users to trigger a denial of service (DoS) by causing the kernel to execute an infinite loop. CVE-2008-1615 Jan Kratochvil reported a local denial of service condition that permits local users on systems running the amd64 flavor kernel to cause a system crash. CVE-2008-2136 Paul Harks discovered a memory leak in the Simple Internet Transition (SIT) code used for IPv6 over IPv4 tunnels. This can be exploited by remote users to cause a denial of service condition. CVE-2008-2137 David Miller and Jan Lieskovsky discovered issues with the virtual address range checking of mmaped regions on the sparc architecture that may be exploited by local users to cause a denial of service. For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.6.18.dfsg.1-18etch5.
