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:

* It was found that the RHSA-2010:0178 update did not correctly fix the
CVE-2009-4307 issue, a divide-by-zero flaw in the ext4 file system code. A
local, unprivileged user with the ability to mount an ext4 file system
could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-2100, Low)

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 this issue, and fix the bugs noted in the Technical
Notes. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.
