[slackware-security]  kernel DoS (SSA:2004-167-01)

New kernel packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1,
and -current to fix a denial of service security issue.  Without
a patch to asm-i386/i387.h, a local user can crash the machine.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2004-0554

Installation instructions:
+------------------------+

Use upgradepkg to install the new packages.
After installing the kernel-ide package you will need to run lilo ('lilo'
at a command prompt) or create a new system boot disk ('makebootdisk'), and
reboot.

If desired, a kernel from the kernels/ directory may be used instead.  For
example, to use the kernel in kernels/scsi.s/, you would copy it to the
boot directory like this:

cd kernels/scsi.s
cp bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-scsi.s-2.4.26

Create a symbolic link:
ln -sf /boot/vmlinuz-scsi.s-2.4.26 /boot/vmlinuz

Then, run 'lilo' or create a new system boot disk and reboot.
