Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : kernel
Version     : 2.6.10                      
Release     : 1.741_FC3                  
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.

  Paul Starzetz from isec.pl found an exploitable hole in the x86
  SMP page fault handler which could lead to privilege escalation.

This update additionally fixes a random memory corruption issue
present in the previous update, and in addition updates to the
latest -ac collection of patches. A full changelog
of the update vs the previous -ac8 based release is available
