Fedora Core 3 2005-013: 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-2005-013 (kernel).

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.

This update rebases the kernel to match the upstream 2.6.10 release,
and adds a number of security fixes by means of adding the latest -ac
patch.
