http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.20.1
(The CVE fix in 2.6.20.1 is already in
kernel-2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6.)
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.20.2
Changelog for 2.6.20.3 is not available yet.

This release does not include Xen kernels.

CVE-2007-0005:
A vulnerability has been reported in the Linux Kernel, which
potentially can be exploited by malicious, local users to
cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or gain escalated privileges.

The vulnerability is caused due to boundary errors within
the "read()" and "write()" functions of the Omnikey CardMan
4040 driver. This can be exploited to cause a buffer
overflow and may allow the execution of arbitrary code with
kernel privileges.
