[SECURITY] Fedora 7 Update: kernel-2.6.23.8-34.fc7



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2007-3751
2007-12-06 20:54:05
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : kernel
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 2.6.23.8
Release     : 34.fc7
URL         : []
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:

Update to kernel 2.6.23.9-rc1:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.23.8

CVE-2007-5501:
The tcp_sacktag_write_queue function in net/ipv4/tcp_input.c
in Linux kernel 2.6.24-rc2 and earlier allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted
ACK responses that trigger a NULL pointer dereference.

CVE-2007-5500:
The wait_task_stopped function in the Linux kernel before
2.6.23.8 checks a TASK_TRACED bit instead of an exit_state
value, which allows local users to cause a denial of service
(machine crash) via unspecified vectors.

Additional fixes:
Major wireless updates.
Fix oops in netfilter NAT module (#259501)
libata: fix resume on some systems
libata: fix pata_serverworks with some drive combinations
Initial FireWire OHCI 1.0 Isochronous Receive support (#344851)
Disable USB autosuspend by default.
Fix oops in CIFS when mounting a filesystem a second time.
Restore platform module autoloading, e.g. pcspkr.
Fix failure to boot on 486DX4 (and possibily other CPUs.)
