Subject: Linux 2.4.30-ow3


Linux 2.4.30-ow3 is out and available at the usual location:

This version adds a fix to the ELF core dump vulnerability (CVE
CAN-2005-1263) discovered by Paul Starzetz:

Linux 2.2.x starting with 2.2.21-ow2(*) and 2.0.x kernels are unaffected.

Also included in 2.4.30-ow3 is a fix to an x86-64 DoS vulnerability
from Linux 2.4.31-pre1.

(*) For the curious:
Yes, I believe the iSEC advisory is incorrect in reporting all 2.2.x
kernels as affected.  I have yet to hear from them on whether this is
indeed the case.  I essentially had the bug fixed with 2.2.21-ow2 and
the fix went into 2.2.22.
