Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 6
Name        : kernel
Version     : 2.6.20
Release     : 1.2944.fc6
Summary     : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description :
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of any
Linux operating system.  The kernel handles the basic functions
of the operating system:  memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc.

Update Information:

Updated to upstream linux kernel

The atalk_sum_skb function in AppleTalk for Linux kernel
2.6.x before 2.6.21, and possibly 2.4.x, allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via an
AppleTalk frame that is shorter than the specified length,
which triggers a BUG_ON call when an attempt is made to
perform a checksum.

CVSS Severity: 3.3 (Low) 

Plus additional fixes:
Bugfix for ATI SB600 SATA
Routing bugfix
Libata LBA48 bugfix
Update libata NCQ blacklist
Libata request sense bugfix
SCSI error handler fix
