Published: 2010-05-04 07:46:25
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

Summary:
Check for the Version of kernel

Affected Versions:
kernel on Mandriva Linux 2010.0, Mandriva Linux 2010.0/X86_64

Technical Details:
Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel: The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-git11 does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls. (CVE-2009-3620) fs/namei.c in Linux kernel 2.6.18 through 2.6.34 does not always follow NFS automount symlinks, which allows attackers to have an unknown impact, related to LOOKUP_FOLLOW. (CVE-2010-1088) The wake_futex_pi function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.33-rc7 does not properly handle certain unlock operations for a Priority Inheritance (PI) futex, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) and possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors involving modification of the futex value from user space. (CVE-2010-0622) drivers/connector/connector.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32.8 allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and system crash) by sending the kernel many NETLINK_CONNECTOR messages. (CVE-2010-0410) The futex_lock_pi function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.33-rc7 does not properly manage a certain reference count, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via vectors involving an unmount of an ext3 filesystem. (CVE-2010-0623) Aditionally, the kernel was updated to the 2.6.31.13 stable release, it was added support for Cirrus Logic CS420x HDA codec, Wacom driver was updated to version 0.8.5-12 and there is a fix in the driver for backlight on Eee PC 1201HA.

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".
