The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update kernel for Fedora Core 2 contains the security fixes as found by Paul Starzetz from isec.pl. In addition this kernel contains a significant number of bugfixes that are inherited from the newer kernel.org kernel this release is based on.

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.
