Fedora 2004-202 Security Check

High

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a security update.

Description

This security update fixes the remote DoS possibility identified and fixed by Adam Osuchowski and Tomasz Dubinski in the netfilter code of the 2.6 kernel. Note that this remote DoS can only be triggered when using the rarely used '-p tcp --tcp-option' options in the netfilter firewall subsystem. Fedora Core 2 systems are not vulnerable unless the administrator manually configured this rarely used option.

Solution

Update the affected package(s).
