The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Update to kernel Upstream change logs:
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog- Also fixes :

- Kernel stack randomization bug - NULL dereference in r128 driver - ftrace memory corruption on module unload
- boot hanging on some systems - some latency problems caused by scheduler bugs

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 kernel package.
