Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 6 2007-058: 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-2007-058 (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.

Update Information:

This is a large rebase to the latest upstream stable kernel
(2.6.19.2)
Complete changelogs available at
www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19
www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19.1
www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.19.2

This update also introduces 'kernel-debug', a variant with
additional debugging options enabled. These kernels may run
with lower performance and increased memory overhead than
the non-debug variants.
