SUSE SLED11 / SLES11 Security Update : kernel (SUSE-SU-2013:1151-1)

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


Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 2 kernel was respun with the
3.0.80 update to fix a severe compatibility problem with kernel module
packages (KMPs) like e.g. drbd.

An incompatible ABI change could lead to those modules not correctly
working or crashing on loading and is fixed by this update.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
