Fedora Core 4 : kernel-2.6.15-1.1831_FC4 (2006-102)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes a remotely exploitable denial of service attack in
the icmp networking code (CVE-2006-0454). An information leak has also
been fixed (CVE-2006-0095), and some debugging patches that had
accidentally been left applied in the previous update have been
removed, restoring the functionality of the 'quiet' argument.

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.
