Fedora 2004-202 Security Check

High Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801554

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a security update.

Description

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.

Solution

Update the affected package(s).
