Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues in the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3 kernel are now available.

This security advisory has been rated as having important security impact
by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 users are advised to upgrade their kernels to
the packages associated with their machine architectures/configurations

Please note that the fix for CVE-2005-0449 required changing the
external symbol linkages (kernel module ABI) for the ip_defrag()
and ip_ct_gather_frags() functions. Any third-party module using either
of these would also need to be fixed.
