The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
This update fixes the following security issue :
- A flaw was found in the way socket buffers (skb)
requiring TSO (TCP segment offloading) were handled by
the sfc driver. If the skb did not fit within the
minimum-size of the transmission queue, the network card
could repeatedly reset itself. A remote attacker could
use this flaw to cause a denial of service.
This update also fixes several bugs.
The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.
