Release Notes: Fixes for two recently discovered Linux kernel vulnerabilities have been added. One of the vulnerabilities allows for dumping the contents of unreadable SUID/SGID programs, the other gives users read access to the environment of SUID/SGID programs they run.
Release Notes: This version updates to Linux 2.4.21, and corrects the RLIMIT_NPROC enforcement so that it does not apply to privileged processes and now also works for 32-bit syscall emulation on Sparc64, PPC64, MIPS64, s390x, and 64-bit PARISC. There is a fix for a harmless user- triggerable oops in the GPF handler on x86/SMP.
Release Notes: The patch has been updated to Linux 2.2.25 which adds a number of security fixes (documented elsewhere). This version of the patch also makes its added RLIMIT_NPROC enforcement work for 32-bit syscalls on sparc64.
Release Notes: This version is updated for Linux 2.2.23.
Release Notes: Linux 2.4.20 is now supported.
Release Notes: This version improves the "lcall" DoS fix for NT (Nested Task) flag attack.
Release Notes: Updated for Linux 2.2.22.
Release Notes: Many security fixes for issues with the Linux kernel were added.
Release Notes: This release has been updated to use with Linux 2.2.21. Certain permissions on /proc entries have been changed to be consistent with Linux 2.4.18-ow0, and the getcwd(2) instance of the d_path() truncation problem and the fsuid/fsgid handling inconsistency have been fixed.
Release Notes: This release corrected the recent zlib (PPP/IrDA Deflate compression) problem and added fixes for two Alpha-specific bugs introduced in Linux 2.2.20.
