Re: local root exploit in 2.4.29

I have a bootcd available, Katarina and Mike both have physical copies of it, but the iso file is located in /var/radmind/bootcd on sixthday. This required a generic kernel, so we now have a 2.4.31-generic available in the shared transcript directory if anyone is interested in using that.

Let me know if there's any problems using the cd, or if there's anything you'd like added to it.

Ack. That was my mistake. I renamed the transcripts and rcs notes, but I neglected to rename the directory holding the files. I had originally named the kernel 1.3.1, but I realized that conflicted with our naming scheme, so I made it 1.4.0. It should be fixed now. The cache manager suffered equally, but also should be better now.

sixthday% lcksum -c sha1 -n kernel-1.4.0.T
kernel-1.4.0.T: verified
sixthday% lcksum -c sha1 -n openafs-1.2.13-cm-1.4.0.T
openafs-1.2.13-cm-1.4.0.T: verified

I'll see what I can do about a bootcd as well.

Our current kernel has a local root exploit that was published May 11th.


The proof of concept will crash a machine:

2.4.31 fixes this, which was released on 2005-06-01. I think that this should be a high priority update that we need to do ASAP.
