Fedora Core


Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2007-225
2007-02-13

Product : Fedora Core 5
Name : kernel
Version : 2.6.19
Release : 1.2288.fc5
Summary : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)

Description :
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of any Linux operating system. The kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device input and output, etc.


Update Information:

CVE-2006-0007:
The key serial number collision avoidance code in the key_alloc_serial function in Linux kernel 2.6.9 up to 2.6.20 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via vectors that trigger a null dereference, as originally reported as "spinlock CPU recursion."

Major rebase to upstream linux kernel 2.6.19.3:
www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19
www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19.1
www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19.2
www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19.3

This update also introduces 'kernel-debug', a variant with additional debugging options enabled. These kernels may run with lower performance and increased memory overhead than the non-debug variants.

Bugs fixed:

2007-02-13

Product : Fedora Core 6
Name : kernel
Version : 2.6.19

Update Information:

CVE-2006-0007:
The key serial number collision avoidance code in the key_alloc_serial function in Linux kernel 2.6.9 up to 2.6.20 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via vectors that trigger a null dereference, as originally reported as "spinlock CPU recursion."

Update to linux kernel 2.6.19.3:
