New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Security update plus some additional bug fixes. Fixes backported from Fedora 13: - Fixes inotify IN_ONESHOT support and restores proper inotify reporting of filesystem unmount events. - Stability fix for mobile Intel graphics adapters (i945GM). - Fixes memory corruption when using hibernation on machines with Intel graphics. - Adds code to disable PCIe ASPM support on systems that don't support it properly.
(Some users may still need to use the option 'pcie_aspm=off' to fix problems with certain PCI Express cards.)

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.

Solution

Update the affected kernel package.
