Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0376
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0376.

The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system.

These new kernel packages contain fixes for the following security issues:

* a flaw in the mount handling routine for 64-bit systems that allowed a
local user to cause denial of service (CVE-2006-7203, Important).

* a flaw in the PPP over Ethernet implementation that allowed a remote user
to cause a denial of service (CVE-2007-2525, Important).

* a flaw in the Bluetooth subsystem that allowed a local user to trigger an
information leak (CVE-2007-1353, Low).

* a bug in the random number generator that prevented the manual seeding of
the entropy pool (CVE-2007-2453, Low).

In addition to the security issues described above, fixes for the following
have been included:

* a race condition between ext3_link/unlink that could create an orphan
inode list corruption.

* a bug in the e1000 driver that could lead to a watchdog timeout panic.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users are advised to upgrade to these packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues.
