The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory RHSA-2003-145
The remote host is running a kernel which is vulnerable to a remote denial
The Linux kernel handles all the low-level functionality of the Operating
System. This version of the kernel is vulnerable to a flaw wherein a remote
attacker can forge source IP addresses in such a way as to create a very
long routing hash chain. An attacker, exploiting this flaw, would need
the ability to craft TCP/IP packets destined to (or through) the Linux kernel.
A successful attack would shut down the server.
