Fedora Core 4 : kernel-2.6.14-1.1653_FC4 (2005-1138)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core 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.

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.
