[slackware-security]  udev (SSA:2009-111-01)

New udev packages are available for Slackware 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2,
and -current to fix security issues.

The udev packages in Slackware 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current
contained a local root hole vulnerability:
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1185

The udev packages in Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current had an integer
overflow which could result in a denial of service:
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1186

Note that udev is only used with 2.6 kernels, which are not used by default
with Slackware 10.2 and 11.0.


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/udev-141-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:
  Upgraded to udev-141.
  This upgrade fixes a local root hole and a denial of service issue.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1185
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1186
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
