Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Updated to upstream linux kernel 2.6.20.6:
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.20.5
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.20.6

CVE-2007-1357: The atalk_sum_skb function in AppleTalk for Linux
kernel 2.6.x before 2.6.21, and possibly 2.4.x, allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via an AppleTalk frame
that is shorter than the specified length, which triggers a BUG_ON
call when an attempt is made to perform a checksum.

CVSS Severity: 3.3 (Low)

Plus additional fixes: ATI SB600 SATA workaround Routing return codes
Libata LBA48 handling Update libata NCQ blacklist Libata request sense
SCSI error handler

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.
