Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2010-35            security@pardus.org.tr

  Severity: 3
      Type: Remote

Summary
=======

Multiple vulnerabilities have  been  fixed  in  kernel,  which  can  be 
exploited by malicious people to cause denial of service,  or  possibly 
arbitrary code execution. 


Description
===========

CVE-2010-0410: 

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-2010-0415: 

The do_pages_move function in mm/migrate.c in the Linux kernel does not 
validate node values, which allows local users to read arbitrary kernel 
memory locations, cause a denial of service (OOPS), and  possibly  have 
unspecified other impact by specifying a node that is not part  of  the 
kernel's node set 



CVE-2009-4538: 

drivers/net/e1000e/netdev.c in the e1000e driver in  the  Linux  kernel 
does not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds  the 
MTU, which allows remote attackers to have an  unspecified  impact  via 
crafted packets, a related issue to CVE-2009-4537. 


Affected packages:

  Pardus 2009:
    kernel, all before 2.6.31.11-130-43
    kernel-pae, all before 2.6.31.11-130-24



Resolution
==========

There are update(s) for kernel, kernel-pae. You  can  update  them  via 
Package Manager or with a single command from console: 

    pisi up kernel kernel-pae
