Scientific Linux Security Update : cpuspeed on SL5.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 60523
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
Descriptioncpuspeed was moved to the security errata from the fastbugs errata because the latest kernel security update depends on it.
This package adds the following enhancements :
- Userspace needed to support the loading of the new Powernow-k8 module that has changed from being built in.
By rectifying this bug, Userspace now loads the new module correctly.
- The cpuspeed init script needed to support loading the speedstep-centrino module if all other module loads had failed. This fallback for Intel hardware is now included with this updated package.
SolutionUpdate the affected cpuspeed package.
