Bug#309429: kernel-source-2.6.8: Local privilege escalation in pktcdvd und raw ioctl handling
Justification: user security hole
Two new local privilege escalations have been found in the 2.6 kernels;
input to the pktcdvd and raw ioctls is passed unchecked. Both issues
have been fixed in 126.96.36.199. 2.4 does not seem to be affected.
At least one of the issues is CAN-2005-1264.
