The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:1671.

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

This update fixes the following security issues:

  • a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux
    kernel. pci_unmap_single() presented a memory leak that could lead to IOMMU
    space exhaustion and a system crash. An attacker on the local network could
    trigger this flaw by using jumbo frames for large amounts of network
    traffic. (CVE-2009-3613, Important)

  • NULL pointer dereference flaws were found in the r128 driver in the Linux
    kernel. Checks to test if the Concurrent Command Engine state was
    initialized were missing in private IOCTL functions. An attacker could use
    these flaws to cause a local denial of service or escalate their
    privileges. (CVE-2009-3620, Important)

  • an information leak was found in the Linux kernel. On AMD64 systems,
    32-bit processes could access and read certain 64-bit registers by
    temporarily switching themselves to 64-bit mode. (CVE-2009-2910, Moderate)

  • the unix_stream_connect() function in the Linux kernel did not check if a
    UNIX domain socket was in the shutdown state. This could lead to a
    deadlock. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial
    of service. (CVE-2009-3621, Moderate)

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.
