Fedora 15 : kernel- (2011-9130)

High Nessus Plugin ID 55583


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fixes some bugs that were caused by upstream stable kernel updates, including a longstanding bug causing oopses when removing USB storage devices and optical media.

Fixes stalls on machines with the latest Intel graphics hardware (Sandybridge.)

Also fixes some important security issues.

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.
