Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.22-1
Severity: grave
Tags: security patch

the following CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id was
published for linux-2.6.

| The utimensat system call in Linux kernel 2.6.22 and other versions
| before does not check file permissions when certain UTIME_NOW
| and UTIME_OMIT combinations are used, which allows local users to
| modify file times of arbitrary files, possibly leading to a denial of
| service.
