    do_brk( ) vulnerability in Rh 7.0 kernel 2.2.19


    Hi Group ,
    I need ur help for finding out if the vulnerability discussed in this link http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,4149,1400446,00.asp is applicable to Kernel 2.2.19 Rh 7.0 . Redhat has a bug open http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/....cgi?id=111240 but that too doesn't say anything about the kernels on RH 7.0 . I would really appreciate if some one could guide me on this issue. I went thru the patch mentioned on the bugzilla site but cldn't find the function in the 2.2.19 source code.

    Thanks in advance

    From the link you posted http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,4149,1400446,00.asp
    The vulnerability is in all releases of the kernel from Version 2.4.0 through 2.5.69, but has been fixed in Releases 2.4.23-pre7 and 2.6.0-test6.
    It isnt in Kernels until version 2.4.0 so you are safe.

    Hi Giro ,
    Thanks for pointing out the fact to me. I was actually looking out for something more authentic , a posting from Redhat or for someone who has actually tried this on 2.2.19 or for someone who has worked on 2.2.19 . I really appreciate ur prompt reply.
    I need this information to confirm to a customer who uses a product on Rh7.0 Kernel 2.2.19.

    Thanks
    Vikul
