Patch for new 64bit kernel susceptability?
I review the 64 bit kernel susceptability in the linux kernel today (9/ 20) Link to article
I have an ubuntu server 10.04 and also 8.04 in my company. My inquiry is could I simply make use of the proper - get energy or the capacity secure - upgrade to spot these bits - yet is the 64 bit kernel spot consisted of in those updates I would certainly download and install?
When questioning these points, you can constantly examine the changelog apply for your mounted bits. As an example, first see to it you depend on day:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Then you can examine what took place in the most up to date kernel upgrade:
cd $(ls -dtr /usr/share/doc/linux-image-* | tail -n1)
zcat changelog.Debian.gz | head -n10
linux (2.6.32-24.43) lucid-security; urgency=low [ Upstream Kernel Changes ] * x86-64, compat: Test %rax for the syscall number, not %eax - CVE-2010-3301 * x86-64, compat: Retruncate rax after ia32 syscall entry tracing - CVE-2010-3301 * compat: Make compat_alloc_user_space() incorporate the access_ok() - CVE-2010-3081
Then you can contrast what kernel you have running versus the most up to date changelog, and also reboot if you have not currently:
Ubuntu 2.6.32-24.43-server 18.104.22.168+drm33.5
