Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : kernel
Version     : 2.6.11
Release     : 1.14_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 the latest upstream stable release,
which fixes a number of security issues. Notably:
- CAN-2005-0210 : dst leak
- CAN-2005-0384 : ppp dos
- CAN-2005-0531 : Sign handling issues.
- CAN-2005-0400 : EXT2 information leak.
- CAN-2005-0449 : Remote oops.
- CAN-2005-0736 : Epoll overflow
- CAN-2005-0749 : ELF loader may kfree wrong memory.
- CAN-2005-0750 : Missing range checking in bluetooth
- CAN-2005-0767 : drm race in radeon
- CAN-2005-0815 : Corrupt isofs images could cause oops

Additionally, a large number of improvements have come from the
2.6.10 -> 2.6.11 transition.

This update requires you are running the latest udev package, and
also (if you are using SELinux) the latest selinux policy packages.
