Description:
Previous versions of the Linux kernel are vulnerable to multiple
security issues, including both man-in-the-middle/hostile server
attacks and remote denial of service attacks that are specific
to certain hardware configurations; these vulnerabilities are
resolved in this version. Additionally, although no rPath kernel is
vulnerable to the widely-publicized local root exploit identified
as CVE-2009-1897, a patch has been applied to guard against other
similar but as yet unknown vulnerabilities.
