Fedora 2005-1138 Security Check

High

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a security update.

Description

This update fixes several minor security related issues.

A problem was discovered where users could reprogram keys, leaving 'traps' for the next user of a console. The ability has been restricted to root.

A 32 bit integer overflow was discovered in the invalidate_inode_pages2() function which could lead to a local denial of service attack.

Solution

Update the affected package(s).
