rPath Security Advisory: 2008-0332-1
rPath Appliance Platform Linux Service 1
rPath Appliance Platform Linux Service 2
rPath Linux 1
rPath Linux 2
Exposure Level Classification:
Local User Non-deterministic Privilege Escalation
rPath Issue Tracking System:
Previous versions of the kernel package contain multiple
vulnerabilities. The inotify functionality may allow local
users to gain privileges via unknown vectors related to race
conditions in inotify watch removal and umount. Additionally,
there are two Denial of Services vulnerabilities, including one
in which a local user may cause a "soft" system lock-up.
This update requires a system reboot to implement the fixes.
