Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57906
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionCVE-2011-4086: jbd2: unmapped buffer with _Unwritten or _Delay flags set can lead to DoS (rhbz 788260) This update rebases the kernel to the newest upstream stable release (3.2.3). As with previous updates, it presents itself as 2.6.xx still, for compatibility reasons.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected kernel package.
