Mandrake This patch addresses a large number of vulnerabilities, uncluding the ability for a user to set the gid of arbitrary files.

Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           kernel
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:066
 Date:                   July 6th, 2004

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1,
			 Multi Network Firewall 8.2
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in the Linux kernel that
 are corrected with this update:
 
 Multiple vulnerabilities were found by the Sparse source checker that
 could allow local users to elevate privileges or gain access to
 kernel memory (CAN-2004-0495).
 
 Missing Discretionary Access Controls (DAC) checks in the chown(2)
 system call could allow an attacker with a local account to change the
 group ownership of arbitrary files, which could lead to root privileges
 on affected systems (CAN-2004-0497).
 
 An information leak vulnerability that affects only ia64 systems was
 fixed (CAN-2004-0565).
 
 Insecure permissions on /proc/scsi/qla2300/HbaApiNode could allow a
 local user to cause a DoS on the system; this only affects 
 Mandrakelinux 9.2 and below (CAN-2004-0587).
 
 A vulnerability that could crash the kernel has also been fixed.  This
 crash, however, can only be exploited via root (in br_if.c).
 
 The provided packages are patched to fix these vulnerabilities.  All
 users are encouraged to upgrade to these updated kernels.
 
 To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at:
