Fedora 13 : kernel-2.6.34.6-54.fc13 (2010-14235)

high Nessus Plugin ID 49161

Language:

New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update solves many of the problems with the previous 2.6.34 kernel, in addition to providing some security fixes. There are still unfixed suspend/resume bugs in this release, but a large number have been fixed -- enough to make it worth releasing this kernel now instead of waiting for more fixes. * Fixes suspend/resume problems on most machines with Radeon graphics.

- Fixes some additional suspend/resume bugs by disabling asynchronous suspend.

- Solves problems with devices not working that were caused by 2.6.34's default usage of ACPI to determine bridge resources. (This means the workaround of adding 'pci=nocrs' should no longer be needed.)

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.
