Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2007:0672 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: kernel security update 2007-08-08 18:16:35 UTC

Description Marcel Holtmann 2006-11-23 05:29:05 UTC
From MOKB-17-11-2006:

http://projects.info-pull.com/mokb/MOKB-17-11-2006.html

The minix filesystem code fails to properly handle corrupted data structures,
leading to an exploitable denial of service issue when a crafted fs stream is
being mounted.

This also affects 2.4 kernels.
