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

  These new kernel packages fix the following security issues:
  
  A flaw was found in the virtual filesystem (VFS). An unprivileged local
  user could truncate directories to which they had write permission; this
  could render the contents of the directory inaccessible. (CVE-2008-0001,
  Important)
  
  A flaw was found in the Xen PAL emulation on Intel 64 platforms. A guest
  Hardware-assisted virtual machine (HVM) could read the arbitrary physical
  memory of the host system, which could make information available to
  unauthorized users. (CVE-2007-6416, Important)
  
  A flaw was found in the way core dump files were created. If a local user
  can get a root-owned process to dump a core file into a directory, which
  the user has write access to, they could gain read access to that core
  file, potentially containing sensitive information. (CVE-2007-6206, Moderate)
  
  A buffer overflow flaw was found in the CIFS virtual file system. A
  remote,authenticated user could issue a request that could lead to a denial
  of service. (CVE-2007-5904, Moderate)
  
  A flaw was found in the "sysfs_readdir" function. A local user could create
  a race condition which would cause a denial of service (kernel oops).
  (CVE-2007-3104, Moderate)
  
  As well, these updated packages fix the following bugs:
  
  * running the "strace -f" command caused strace to hang, without displaying
  information about child processes.
  
  * unmounting an unresponsive, interruptable NFS mount, for example, one
  mounted with the "intr" option, may have caused a system crash.
  
  * a bug in the s2io.ko driver prevented VLAN devices from being added.
  Attempting to add a device to a VLAN, for example, running the "vconfig
  add [device-name] [vlan-id]" command caused vconfig to fail.
  
  * tux used an incorrect open flag bit. This caused problems when building
  packages in a chroot environment, such as mock, which is used by the koji
  build system.
  
  Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users are advised to upgrade to these updated
  packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.";
