Published: 2009-04-09 12:18:58
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Summary:
Check for the Version of kernel

Affected Versions:
kernel on Mandriva Linux 2007.1, Mandriva Linux 2007.1/X86_64

Recommendations:
Please Install the Updated Packages.

Technical Details:
Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel: The Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.6.18, and probably other versions, does not properly check feature lengths, which might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code, related to an unspecified overflow. (CVE-2008-2358) VFS in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22.16, and 2.6.23.x before 2.6.23.14, performs tests of access mode by using the flag variable instead of the acc_mode variable, which might allow local users to bypass intended permissions and remove directories. (CVE-2008-0001) Linux kernel before 2.6.22.17, when using certain drivers that register a fault handler that does not perform range checks, allows local users to access kernel memory via an out-of-range offset. (CVE-2008-0007) Integer overflow in the hrtimer_start function in kernel/hrtimer.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.23.10 allows local users to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (panic) via a large relative timeout value. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information. (CVE-2007-5966) The shmem_getpage function (mm/shmem.c) in Linux kernel 2.6.11 through 2.6.23 does not properly clear allocated memory in some rare circumstances related to tmpfs, which might allow local users to read sensitive kernel data or cause a denial of service (crash). (CVE-2007-6417) The isdn_ioctl function in isdn_common.c in Linux kernel 2.6.23 allows local users to cause a denial of service via a crafted ioctl struct in which iocts is not null terminated, which triggers a buffer overflow. (CVE-2007-6151) The do_coredump function in fs/exec.c in Linux kernel 2.4.x and 2.6.x up to 2.6.24-rc3, and possibly other versions, does not change the UID of a core dump file if it exists before a root process creates a core dump in the same location, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2007-6206) Buffer overflow in the isdn_net_setcfg function in isdn_net.c in Linux kernel 2.6.23 allows local users to have an unknown impact via a crafted argument to the isdn_ioctl function. (CVE-2007-6063) The wait_task_stopped function in the Linux kernel before 2.6.23.8 checks a TASK_TRACED bit instead of an exit_state value, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (machine crash) via unspecified vectors. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information. (CVE-2007-5500) The minix filesystem code in Lin ... Description truncated, for more information please check the Reference URL

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".
