Description


Updated kernel packages that fix one security issue and several bugs are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
operating system.

This update fixes the following security issue:

* A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's dl2k driver, used by
certain D-Link Gigabit Ethernet adapters, restricted IOCTLs. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to issue potentially harmful IOCTLs,
which could cause Ethernet adapters using the dl2k driver to malfunction
(for example, losing network connectivity). (CVE-2012-2313, Low)

Red Hat would like to thank Stephan Mueller for reporting this issue.

This update also fixes several bugs. Documentation for these changes will
be available shortly from the Technical Notes document linked to in the
References section.

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this
update to take effect.
