Fedora Core 2 : kernel-2.6.6-1.435.2.1 (2004-202)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core 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.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
