    Debian Security Advisory DSA 492-1 security@debian.org
    http://www.debian.org/security/ Matt Zimmerman

    Package : iproute
    Vulnerability : denial of service
    Problem-Type : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids : CAN-2003-0856
    Debian Bug : 242994

    Herbert Xu reported that local users could cause a denial of service
    against iproute, a set of tools for controlling networking in Linux
    kernels. iproute uses the netlink interface to communicate with the
    kernel, but failed to verify that the messages it received came from
    the kernel (rather than from other user processes).

    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 20010824-8woody1.

    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

    We recommend that you update your iproute package.

    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------

    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.

    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:

    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages

    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

    Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 alias woody
