Fedora Security Update Notification
FEDORA-2003-047
2004-01-07
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Name : kernel
Version : 2.4.22
Release : 1.2140.nptl
Summary : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description :
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of your Red Hat Linux operating system. The kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device input and output, etc.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Various RTC drivers had the potential to leak small amounts of kernel memory to userspace through IOCTL's.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2003-0984 to this issue.
