CVE-2009-0675 Detail

Current Description

The skfp_ioctl function in drivers/net/skfp/skfddi.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28.6 permits SKFP_CLR_STATS requests only when the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability is absent, instead of when this capability is present, which allows local users to reset the driver statistics, related to an "inverted logic" issue.

Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement fromRed Hat (05/19/2009)

This issue did not affect the version of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 as the affected driver is not enabled in these kernels by default. The affected driver is enabled by default in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3, 5, and Red Hat Enterprise MRG. It was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-0326.html and Red Hat Enterprise MRG via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-0360.html . As Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 and 3 are now in Production 3 of their maintenance life-cycle, http://www.redhat.com/security/updates/errata, and this issue has been rated as having moderate impact, the fix for this issue is not currently planned to be included in the future updates.
