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

  This update fixes the following security issues:
  
  * It was found that the Xen hypervisor implementation did not perform
  range checking on the guest provided values in multiple hypercalls. A
  privileged guest user could use this flaw to trigger long loops, leading
  to a denial of service (Xen hypervisor hang). (CVE-2012-5515, Moderate)
  
  * It was found that when running a 32-bit binary that uses a large number
  of shared libraries, one of the libraries would always be loaded at a
  predictable address in memory. An attacker could use this flaw to bypass
  the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature.
  (CVE-2012-1568, Low)
  
  * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's IPv6 implementation
  handled overlapping, fragmented IPv6 packets. A remote attacker could
  potentially use this flaw to bypass protection mechanisms (such as a
  firewall or intrusion detection system (IDS)) when sending network packets
  to a target system. (CVE-2012-4444, Low)
  
  Red Hat would like to thank the Xen project for reporting CVE-2012-5515,
  and Antonios Atlasis working with Beyond Security's SecuriTeam Secure
  Disclosure program and Loganaden Velvindron of AFRINIC for reporting
  CVE-2012-4444.
  
  This update also fixes several bugs. Space precludes documenting all of
  these changes in this advisory. Documentation for these changes will be
  available shortly from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.9 Technical Notes
  document linked to in the References section.
  
  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.";
