[SECURITY] Fedora 7 Update: kernel-2.6.22.1-27.fc7



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2007-1130
2007-07-20 12:33:20.969212
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : kernel
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 2.6.22.1
Release     : 27.fc7
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:

Rebase kernel to 2.6.22.1:
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.22
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.22.1

Includes the CFS scheduler from upstream kernel 2.6.23.

Users should update to the latest autofs package with this kernel or autofs will use excessive amounts of CPU time.

CVE-2007-3642: 
The decode_choice function in net/netfilter/bf_conntrack_h323_asn1.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via an encoded, out-of-range index value for a choice field, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference.
