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

  These updated packages fix the following security issues:
  
  * a flaw was found in the SOCKOPS_WRAP macro in the Linux kernel. This
  macro did not initialize the sendpage operation in the proto_ops structure
  correctly. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a local
  denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-2692, Important)
  
  * a flaw was found in the udp_sendmsg() implementation in the Linux kernel
  when using the MSG_MORE flag on UDP sockets. A local, unprivileged user
  could use this flaw to cause a local denial of service or escalate their
  privileges. (CVE-2009-2698, Important)
  
  Red Hat would like to thank Tavis Ormandy and Julien Tinnes of the Google
  Security Team for responsibly reporting these flaws.
  
  All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 users should upgrade to these updated
  packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. The
  system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.";
