Fedora 12 : kernel- (2010-18432)

High Nessus Plugin ID 50867


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


'Update to stable release, includes many CVE fixes documented in the upstream changelogs plus CVE-2010-3880, CVE-2010-4072, CVE-2010-4073, and a bunch of kernel stack leakages in the tty and serial drivers.'

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.
