        Immunix OS Security Advisory

Packages updated:       kernel
Effected products:      Immunix OS 6.2 and 7.0-beta
Bugs Fixed:             immunix/1324
Date:                   February 8, 2001
Advisory ID:            IMNX-2001-70-002-01
Author:                 Greg Kroah-Hartman <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
  Chris Evans has discovered a security problem in the kernel select()
  call that can lead to information leakage in the kernel.  There has
  also been discovered a race condition that could allow an attacker to
  attach to a setuid process using ptrace, which would then allow them
  to modify that process.

  Packages have been created and released for Immunix 6.2 and 7.0-beta
  to fix these problems.

  Many thanks to Chris Evans for finding and reporting this problem and
  to Solar Designer for creating a patch to solve the ptrace problem.
