Title    : Updated 2.4 kernel fixes privilege escalation security vulnerability
Date     : 12/03/2003
Reference: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2003-392.html
Affected Products: WEBppliance for Linux

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ensim is aware of a flaw in bounds checking in the do_brk() function in the Linux kernel versions 2.4.22 and previous. RedHat has released an updated kernel which addresses this vulnerability. You may download the updated kernel RPM and install this RPM immediately from:

https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2003-392.html

Ensim has verified this RPM with WEBppliance PRO for Linux 3.5.20.

Although this RPM should work with earlier versions of WEBppliance, Ensim recommends upgrading to the latest product version because we've enhanced 3.5.20 with the proper quota support.
