Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 2
Name        : kernel
Version     : 2.6.10                      
Release     : 1.8_FC2                  
Summary     : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description :
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of any
Linux operating system.  The kernel handles the basic functions
of the operating system:  memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc.

This update rebases the kernel to match the upstream 2.6.10 release,
and adds a number of security fixes by means of adding the latest -ac patch.

  Paul Starzetz from isec.pl found a problem in the binary format loaders uselib()
  function that could lead to potential priveledge escalation.

  Brad Spengler found several problems.
  - An integer overflow in the random poolsize sysctl handler.
  - SCSI ioctl integer overflow and information leak.
  - RLIMIT_MEMLOCK bypass and unprivileged user DoS.

  Coverity Inc. found a number of bugs with their automated source checker
  in coda, xfs, network bridging, rose network protocol, and the sdla wan driver.
