Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : kernel

Release : 1.737_FC3
Summary : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description :
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.

Paul Starzetz from found a problem in the binary format loaders uselib()
function that could lead to potential priveledge escalation.

Brad Spengler found several problems.
- An integer overflow in the random poolsize sysctl handler.
- SCSI ioctl integer overflow and information leak.
- RLIMIT_MEMLOCK bypass and unprivileged user DoS.

Coverity Inc. found a number of bugs with their automated source checker
in coda, xfs, network bridging, rose network protocol, and the sdla wan driver.
