Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : kernel
Version : 2.6.6
Release : 1.435.2.1
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.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This security update fixes the remote DoS possibility identified and fixed by Adam Osuchowski and Tomasz Dubinski in the netfilter code of the 2.6 kernel. Note that this remote DoS can only be triggered when using the rarely used "-p tcp --tcp-option" options in the netfilter firewall subsystem. Fedora Core 2 systems are not vulnerable unless the administrator manually configured this rarely used option.
