                        SuSE Security Announcement

        Package:  kernel < 2.2.16
        Date:     Tue Jun 27 13:31:38 MEST 2000

        Affected SuSE versions: 6.1-6.4
        Vulnerability Type:     local compromise of setuid applications
        SuSE default package:   yes

______________________________________________________________________________

A security hole was discovered in the package mentioned above.
Please update it as soon as possible or disable the service if you are using
this software on your SuSE Linux installation(s).

Other Linux distributions or operating systems might be affected as
well, please contact your vendor for information about this issue.

Please note that we provide this information on an "as-is" basis only.
There is no warranty whatsoever and no liability for any direct, indirect or
incidental damage arising from this information or the installation of
the update package.
_____________________________________________________________________________

1. Problem Description

  The implementation of the capability feature of the kernel 2.2.x < 2.2.16
  is faulty.

2. Impact

  This bug allows an local adversary to exploit certain setuid
  applications to increase his/her privileges.

3. Solution

  We are sorry about the late release of the new kernel, but the plain
  2.2.16 kernel causes trouble with our patches and it also has a new
  security hole. After we solved all these problems, we hope,
  we could provide you with a more stable and more secure kernel.

  Please, update the package from our FTP server.
  (These RPMs could also be used by SuSE Releases < 6.4!)

  The Alpha kernel will be released within the next days. The PPC kernel
  could be build from lx_suse.rpm
