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

1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages are now available as part of ongoing support and
maintenance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 3. This is the ninth
regular update.

This security advisory has been rated as having important security impact
by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system.

This is the ninth regular kernel update to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

There were no new features introduced by this update. The only changes
that have been included address critical customer needs or security
issues (elaborated below).

Key areas affected by fixes in this update include the networking
subsystem, dcache handling, the ext2 and ext3 file systems, the USB
subsystem, ACPI handling, and the audit subsystem. There were also
several isolated fixes in the tg3, e1000, megaraid_sas, and aacraid
device drivers.

The following security bugs were fixed in this update:

* a flaw in the cramfs file system that allowed invalid compressed
data to cause memory corruption (CVE-2006-5823, low)

* a flaw in the ext2 file system that allowed an invalid inode size
to cause a denial of service (system hang) (CVE-2006-6054, low)

* a flaw in IPV6 flow label handling that allowed a local user to
cause a denial of service (crash) (CVE-2007-1592, important)

Note: The kernel-unsupported package contains various drivers and modules
that are unsupported and therefore might contain security problems that
have not been addressed.

All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 users are advised to upgrade their
kernels to the packages associated with their machine architectures
and configurations as listed in this erratum.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously released
errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:
