Linux kernel multiple security vulnerabilities
SecurityVulns ID:9048
Threat Level:
Description:fcntl() race conditions, tehuti driver privilege escalation.
Affected:LINUX : kernel 2.6
CVE:CVE-2008-1675 (The bdx_ioctl_priv function in the tehuti driver (tehuti.c) in Linux kernel 2.6.x before does not properly check certain information related to register size, which has unspecified impact and local attack vectors, probably related to reading or writing kernel memory.)
 CVE-2008-1669 (Linux kernel before does not apply a certain protection mechanism for fcntl functionality, which allows local users to (1) execute code in parallel or (2) exploit a race condition to obtain "re-ordered access to the descriptor table.")
 CVE-2008-1375 (Race condition in the directory notification subsystem (dnotify) in Linux kernel 2.6.x before, and 2.6.25 before, allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) and possibly gain privileges via unspecified vectors.)
