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

Fix possible local privilege escalation on x86_64 systems (CVE-2010-3081, CVE-2010-3301).

- NOTE: All users should update because of this bug. Fix denial of service attack with large argument lists. Add support for perl and python scripting to perf. Nouveau video driver fixes :

- fix oops in acpi edid support

- disable acceleration on nva3/nva5/nva8

- misc fixes from upstream + NVAF support Add support for the eject key on the Dell Studio 1555 fix rcu_dereference_check warning Restore appleir driver that got lost in the 2.6.35 rebase. Fix DMA in via-velocity network driver.

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.
