Linux kernel has multiple flaws
Users are advised to update their systems against multiple denial-of-service and permission vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel that could be exploited by an attacker. Gentoo said the flaws are "high impact." "The Linux kernel allows a local attacker to mount a remote file system on a vulnerable Linux host and modify files' group IDs," Gentoo said in an advisory. "Also, a flaw in the handling of /proc attributes has been found in 2.6 series kernels, allowing the unauthorized modification of /proc entries, especially those which rely solely on file permissions for security to vital kernel parameters."
