    Debian Security Advisory DSA 514-1 security@debian.org

    Package : kernel-source-2.2.20, kernel-image-2.2-sparc
    Vulnerability : failing function and TLB flush
    Problem-Type : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID : CAN-2004-0077
    CERT advisory : VU#981222

    Paul Starzetz and Wojciech Purczynski of isec.pl discovered a critical
    security vulnerability in the memory management code of Linux inside
    the mremap(2) system call. Due to flushing the TLB (Translation
    Lookaside Buffer, an address cache) too early it is possible for an
    attacker to trigger a local root exploit.

    The attack vectors for 2.4.x and 2.2.x kernels are exclusive for the
    respective kernel series, though. We formerly believed that the
    exploitable vulnerability in 2.4.x does not exist in 2.2.x which is
    still true. However, it turned out that a second (sort of)
    vulnerability is indeed exploitable in 2.2.x, but not in 2.4.x, with a
    different exploit, of course.

    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 9woody1 of Linux 2.2 kernel images for the sparc architecture
    and in version 2.2.20-5woody3 of Linux 2.2.20 source.

    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 9.1 of Linux 2.2 kernel images for the sparc architecture.

    This problem has been fixed for other architectures already.

    We recommend that you upgrade your Linux kernel 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
