Fedora 8 Update: kernel- Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Fedora The asn1 implementation in (a) the Linux kernel 2.4 before and 2.6 before, as used in the cifs and ip_nat_snmp_basic modules; and (b) the gxsnmp package; does not properly validate length values during decoding of ASN.1 BER data, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or execute arbitrary code via (1) a length greater than the working buffer, which can lead to an unspecified overflow; (2) an oid length of zero, which can lead to an off-by-one error; or (3) an indefinite length for a primitive encoding.
Fedora Update Notification
2008-06-20 16:41:05

Name        : kernel
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     :
Release     : 27.fc8
URL         :
Summary     : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description :
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of any
Linux operating system.  The kernel handles the basic functions
of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc.

Update Information:

Update to kernel    CVE-2008-1673:
The asn1 implementation in (a) the Linux kernel 2.4 before and 2.6
before, as used in the cifs and ip_nat_snmp_basic modules; and (b) the
gxsnmp package; does not properly validate length values during decoding of
ASN.1 BER data, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) or execute arbitrary code via (1) a length greater than the working
buffer, which can lead to an unspecified overflow; (2) an oid length of zero,
which can lead to an off-by-one error; or (3) an indefinite length for a
primitive encoding.    Bugs fixed:  224005 - pata_pcmcia fails  326411 - Freeze

undocking  F9#447812 - Netlink messages from "tc" to sch_netem module are not
interpreted correctly  F9#449817 - SD card reader causes kernel panic during
startup if card inserted    Additional updates/fixes:  - Fix oops in lirc_i2c
