Fedora Core 2 : kernel-2.6.9-1.6_FC2 (2004-450)

High Nessus Plugin ID 15790


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update brings a rebase to 2.6.9, including various security fixes incorporated into the upstream kernel, and also includes Alan Cox's
-ac patchset, which adds additional security fixes.

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.


Update the affected packages.
