Fedora 2004-202 Security Check

High Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801554


The remote host is missing a security update.


This security update fixes the remote DoS possibility identified and
fixed by Adam Osuchowski and Tomasz Dubinski in the netfilter code of
the 2.6 kernel. Note that this remote DoS can only be triggered when
using the rarely used '-p tcp --tcp-option' options in the netfilter
firewall subsystem. Fedora Core 2 systems are not vulnerable unless
the administrator manually configured this rarely used option.


Update the affected package(s).
