Description

Updated to kernel 2.6.19.5 plus additional fixes :

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19.4 http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19.5

CVE-2007-0772: Summary: The Linux kernel before 2.6.20.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (oops) via a crafted NFSACL 2 ACCESS request that triggers a free of an incorrect pointer.

CVE-2006-5753: Summary: Unspecified vulnerability in the listxattr system call in Linux kernel, when a 'bad inode' is present, allows local users to cause a denial of service (data corruption) and possibly gain privileges via unknown vectors.

Fixed broken SCSI CDROM IOCTLs. Added Xen, which was missing from 1.2911.6.3

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
