Fedora Core 4 : kernel-2.6.15-1.1831_FC4 (2006-102)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20872
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update fixes a remotely exploitable denial of service attack in the icmp networking code (CVE-2006-0454). An information leak has also been fixed (CVE-2006-0095), and some debugging patches that had accidentally been left applied in the previous update have been removed, restoring the functionality of the 'quiet' argument.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
