Fedora 12 : kernel-2.6.32.16-150.fc12 (2010-11412)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Security update plus some additional bug fixes. Fixes backported from
Fedora 13: - Fixes inotify IN_ONESHOT support and restores proper
inotify reporting of filesystem unmount events. - Stability fix for
mobile Intel graphics adapters (i945GM). - Fixes memory corruption
when using hibernation on machines with Intel graphics. - Adds code to
disable PCIe ASPM support on systems that don't support it properly.
(Some users may still need to use the option 'pcie_aspm=off' to fix
problems with certain PCI Express cards.)

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.
