OVAL

MDVSA-2009:071 -- Mandriva kernel

ID: oval:org.secpod.oval:def:301211Date: (C)2012-01-07   (M)2017-10-04
Class: PATCHFamily: unix




Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel: The skfp_ioctl function in drivers/net/skfp/skfddi.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28.6 permits SKFP_CLR_STATS requests only when the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability is absent, instead of when this capability is present, which allows local users to reset the driver statistics, related to an inverted logic issue. The sock_getsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28.6 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory via an SO_BSDCOMPAT getsockopt request. Additionaly, this update provides stable 1.0.18 ALSA updates/fixes, STAC92HD71Bx/STAC92HD75Bx hda-intel support changes/fixes , fixes/enhancements for HP Educ.ar machine HDA sound support, minor alsa hda-intel code cleanup for ALC888 6stack-dell model, to stop printing uneeded output to kernel log, and a few more things.
