Problem description

A flaw in bounds checking in mremap() in the Linux kernel versions 2.4.23 and previous was discovered by Paul Starzetz. This flaw may be used to allow a local attacker to obtain root privilege. Another minor information leak in the RTC (real time clock) routines was fixed as well. All Mandrake Linux users are encouraged to upgrade to these packages immediately. To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at: http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/kernelupdate.php Mandrake Linux 9.1 and 9.2 users should upgrade the initscripts (9.1) and bootloader-utils (9.2) packages prior to upgrading the kernel as they contain a fixed installkernel script that fixes instances where the loop module was not being loaded and would cause mkinitrd to fail. Users requiring commercial NVIDIA drivers can find drivers for Mandrake Linux 9.2 at MandrakeClub.
