The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
A race condition in the directory notification subsystem (dnotify) in
Linux kernel 2.6.x before 188.8.131.52, and 2.6.25 before 184.108.40.206, allows
local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) and possibly gain
privileges via unspecified vectors. (CVE-2008-1375)
The Linux kernel before 220.127.116.11 does not apply a certain protection
mechanism for fcntl functionality, which allows local users to (1)
execute code in parallel or (2) exploit a race condition to obtain
re-ordered access to the descriptor table. (CVE-2008-1669)
Additionaly, the updated kernel for Mandriva Linux 2008.0 has bug
fixes for sound on NEC S970 systems, an oops in module rt73, and the
-devel package fixes DKMS builds.
To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at :
