Test ID:
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:1055
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:1055.

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
operating system.

This update fixes the following security issue:

* a buffer overflow was found in the Linux kernel Partial Reliable Stream
Control Transmission Protocol (PR-SCTP) implementation. This could,
potentially, lead to a remote denial of service or arbitrary code execution
if a Forward-TSN chunk is received with a large stream ID. Note: An
established connection between SCTP endpoints is necessary to exploit this
vulnerability. Refer to the Knowledgebase article in the References section
for further information. (CVE-2009-0065, Important)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* a problem in the way the i5000_edac module reported errors may have
caused the console on some systems to be flooded with errors, similar to
the following:

EDAC i5000 MC0: NON-FATAL ERROR Found!!! 1st NON-FATAL Err Reg= [hex value]
EDAC i5000: NON-Retry Errors, bits= [hex value]

After installing this update, the console will not be flooded with these
errors. (BZ#494734)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this
update to take effect.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
