  operating system.

  This update fixes the following security issues:

  * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the nf_ct_frag6_reasm()
  function in the Linux kernel's netfilter IPv6 connection tracking
  implementation. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send
  specially-crafted packets to a target system that is using IPv6 and also
  has the nf_conntrack_ipv6 kernel module loaded, causing it to crash.
  (CVE-2012-2744, Important)

  * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's key management facility
  handled replacement session keyrings on process forks. A local,
  unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service.
  (CVE-2012-2745, Moderate)

  Red Hat would like to thank an anonymous contributor working with the
  Beyond Security SecuriTeam Secure Disclosure program for reporting
  CVE-2012-2744.

  This update also fixes the following bugs:

  * Previously introduced firmware files required for new Realtek chipsets
  contained an invalid prefix ("rtl_nic_") in the file names, for example
  "/lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl_nic_rtl8168d-1.fw". This update corrects these
  file names. For example, the aforementioned file is now correctly named
  "/lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168d-1.fw". (BZ#832359)

  * This update blacklists the ADMA428M revision of the 2GB ATA Flash Disk
  device. This is due to data corruption occurring on the said device when
  the Ultra-DMA 66 transfer mode is used. When the
  "libata.force=5:pio0,6:pio0" kernel parameter is set, the aforementioned
  device works as expected. (BZ#832363)

  * On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, mounting an NFS export from a server
  running Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate returned the
  NFS4ERR_MINOR_VERS_MISMATCH error because Windows Server 2012 Release
  Candidate supports NFSv4.1 only. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 did not
  properly handle the returned error and did not fall back to using NFSv3,
  which caused the mount operation to fail. With this update, when the
  NFS4ERR_MINOR_VERS_MISMATCH error is returned, the mount operation properly
  falls back to using NFSv3 and no longer fails. (BZ#832365)

  * On ext4 file systems, when fallocate() failed to allocate blocks due to
  the ENOSPC condition (no space left on device) for a file larger than 4 GB,
  the size of the file became corrupted and, consequently, caused file system
  corruption. This was due to a mi ...
