Description

This kernel update fixes the following security problems :

  • tunneled ipv6 packets (SIT) could trigger a memory leak in the kernel. Remote attackers could exploit that to crash machines. (CVE-2008-2136)

Additionally the following bugfixes have been included for all platforms :

  • patches.xfs/xfs-kern_31033a_Fix-fsync-b0rkage.patch: Fix XFS fsync breakage. (bnc#388798)

  • patches.fixes/sit-add-missing-kfree_skb: sit - Add missing kfree_skb() on pskb_may_pull() failure. . (bnc#389152)

  • patches.xfs/xfs-kern_30701a_Ensure-a-btree-insert-return s-a- valid-cursor.patch: Ensure a btree insert returns a valid cursor. ( bnc#388806).

  • patches.fixes/369802_d_path_fix.patch: fix d_path for pseudo filesystems. (bnc#369802)

  • patches.fixes/ignore_lost_ticks: fixed do_vgettimeofday() and other issues with this patch. (bnc#267050)

  • patches.drivers/pci-express-aer-aerdriver-off.patch: PCI

  • add possibility to turn AER off. (bnc#382033)

  • patches.drivers/pci-express-aer-documentation: PCI - add AER documentation. (bnc#382033)
