[SECURITY] Fedora Core 5 Update: kernel-2.6.18-1.2239.fc5



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2006-1221
2006-11-10
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 5
Name        : kernel
Version     : 2.6.18
Release     : 1.2239.fc5
Summary     : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description :
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of any
Linux operating system.  The kernel handles the basic functions
of the operating system:  memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This updates to the latest upstream stable kernel
(2.6.18.2), and also fixes a number of security issues.

MOKB-05-11-2006: Linux 2.6.x ISO9660 __find_get_block_slow()
denial of service
http://projects.info-pull.com/mokb/MOKB-05-11-2006.html
(CVE-2006-5757)

MOKB-07-11-2006: Linux 2.6.x zlib_inflate memory corruption
http://projects.info-pull.com/mokb/MOKB-07-11-2006.html

MOKB-09-11-2006: Linux 2.6.x ext3fs_dirhash denial of service
http://projects.info-pull.com/mokb/MOKB-10-11-2006.html

Herbert Xu found a security issue in the Xen hypervisor,
which would allow a malicious guest to access a freed grant
table page after freeing and possibly having it reallocated
to another guest.
