Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0342
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0342.

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

This update fixes the following security issue:

* a flaw was found in the sctp_rcv_ootb() function in the Linux kernel
Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation. A remote
attacker could send a specially-crafted SCTP packet to a target system,
resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2010-0008, Important)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* the fix for CVE-2009-4538 provided by RHSA-2010:0111 introduced a

the Intel PRO/1000 Linux driver, e1000e. Attempting to configure WoL for
such devices resulted in the following error, even when configuring valid

Cannot set new wake-on-lan settings: Operation not supported not
setting wol

This update resolves this regression, and WoL now works as expected for
network devices using the e1000e driver. (BZ#565495)

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.
