Description

This SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP3 kernel update fixes a severe regression introduced by previous bugfix updates that would corrupt NFSv4 mounted data.

The update also fixes several other bugs and following security issue :

  • drivers/net/r8169.c in the r8169 driver of Linux kernel 2.6.32.3 and earlier does not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the maximum transmission unit (MTU), which allows remote attackers to. (CVE-2009-4537)

    1. cause a denial of service (temporary network outage) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing A characters and certain packets containing E characters; or 2. cause a denial of service (system crash) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing
