Fedora Core 6 : kernel-184.108.40.206-45.fc6 (2007-679)
High Nessus Plugin ID 25976
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpdate to linux 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168:
CVE-2007-3848: Linux kernel 2.4.35 and other versions allows local users to send arbitrary signals to a child process that is running at higher privileges by causing a setuid-root parent process to die, which delivers an attacker-controlled parent process death signal (PR_SET_PDEATHSIG).
Update to 22.214.171.124-rc1. Highlights: ACPI fixes. Fix wrong temperature reports with some sensor chips. Four sky2 ethernet driver fixes. Fix detection of an AMD chip bug. Revert serial driver patch that broke port detection.
Plus: Additional sky2 fix for some motherboards.
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.
