Fedora Core 4 : kernel-2.6.16-1.2108_FC4 (2006-517)

High Nessus Plugin ID 24101


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


Mark Moseley reported that a chroot environment on a SMB share can be left via 'cd ..\'. Similar to CVE-2006-1863 issue with cifs, this fix is for smbfs. (CVE-2006-1864)

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.
