FEDORA-2004-205
2004-07-02
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : kernel
Version : 2.6.6
Release : 1.435.2.3
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.

During an audit of the Linux kernel, SUSE discovered a flaw in the Linux kernel that inappropriately allows an unprivileged user to change the group ID of a file to his/her own group ID. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0497 to this issue.

All Fedora Core 2 users are advised to upgrade their kernels to the packages associated with their machine architectures and configurations as listed in this erratum.
