Fedora 22 : kernel-4.0.0-0.rc4.git0.1.fc22 (2015-4066)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 82056

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Update to latest upstream 4.0 release, Linux v4.0-rc4. This also should fix some aarch64 hangs and builds with variant set. UEFI ESRT support is added.

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.
