Package: kernel-source-2.6.8
Version: 2.6.8
Severity: grave
Tags: security
Justification: user security hole

Paul Starzetz from iSec Security Research has discovered a local root exploit in
the Linux kernel:
> Locally exploitable  flaws have  been  found in  the  Linux
> binary format loaders' uselib() functions that allow  local
> users to gain root privileges.

The full advisory text: http://isec.pl/vulnerabilities/isec-0021-uselib.txt

I haven't found a patch for 2.6 yet, a patch for 2.4 is available in
the 2.4 Bitkeeper branch.

 kernel-source-2.6.9 (2.6.9-5) unstable; urgency=low
   * [powerpc] Added a couple of powermac patches from Benjamin Herrenschmidt :
     - 970FX cpu support
     - G5 thermal management update
     - Misc powermac fixes backports
     (Bug #287030) (Sven Luther)
   * [powerpc] Moved from powerpc kernel-patch package :
     - powermac legacy serial fix.
     - pegasos via-ide dual interrupt fix.
     (Sven Luther)
   * [powerpc] Added _chrp_type support though pegasos patch (Sven Luther)
   * [powerpc - prep] Fix bad irq assignement for pci devices on motorola
     powerstack boxes. (Sven Luther)
   * add dh_fixperms to the build targets to kernel-patch-debian-2.6.9
     to ensure that the permissions of the files in this package are
      sensible. (See: Bug#288279) (Simon Horman)
   * [SECURITY] Fix vulnerability in the ELF loader code allowing
     local attacker to execute code as root; CAN-2004-1235.
     (Maximilian Attems)
   * [SECURITY] 028-do_brk_security_fixes.dpatch
     Drop Marcelo's fix, use Linus' instead.
     Fix local root vulnerability for various do_brk() calls;
     ensure an exclusive lock on memory while modifying it; CAN-2004-1235
     (Andres Salomon) (closes: #289155).
   * [SECURITY] 029-random_poolsize_overflow.dpatch
     drivers/char/random allows you to set the poolsize; its sanity checking
     on that input isn's very good.  We fix that here.
     See http://seclists.org/lists/fulldisclosure/2005/Jan/0270.html for
     more details.  This fixes #3 on that list (Andres Salomon).
   * [SECURITY] 030-moxa_user_copy_checking.dpatch
     The moxa driver does some ugly things w/ signed integers.  This fixes
     #4 on Brad Spengler's advisory (Andres Salomon).
   * [SECURITY] 031-sg_scsi_ioctl_int_overflows.dpatch
     SG ioctl stuff doesn't actually check whether the scsi command length
     is positive.  #5 on the above advisory (Andres Salomon).
