Fedora Core 6 : kernel-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 (2007-058)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This is a large rebase to the latest upstream stable kernel (2.6.19.2)
Complete changelogs available at
www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19
www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19.1
www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19.2

This update also introduces 'kernel-debug', a variant with additional
debugging options enabled. These kernels may run with lower
performance and increased memory overhead than the non-debug variants.

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.
