Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2007:0436 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: Updated kernel packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 9 2007-06-08 00:03:57 UTC

Description Marcel Holtmann 2006-11-23 08:17:01 UTC
From MOKB-12-11-2006:


The ext2 filesystem code fails to properly handle corrupted data structures,
leading to an exploitable denial of service issue when read operation is being
done on a crafted fs stream.
