Fedora Core 1 2003-047: kernel

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kernel package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2003-047 (kernel).

The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of your
Red Hat Linux operating system. The kernel handles the basic functions
of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc.


Various RTC drivers had the potential to leak small amounts of kernel
memory to userspace through IOCTL's.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0984 to this issue.
