Fedora 13 : kernel- (2010-11462)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 48230


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Security update plus some additional bug fixes. Also contains some fixes for systems with Intel graphics: - Fixes memory corruption when using hibernation (parially fixed in the previous kernel update.) - Fixes stability issues on some mobile graphics adapters (i945GM).

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.
