rPath Linux 1
rPath Appliance Platform Linux Service 1
Exposure Level Classification:
Remote User Deterministic Denial of Service
kernel=conary.rpath.com at rpl:1/18.104.22.168-0.2-1

rPath Issue Tracking System:
Previous versions of the kernel package have several vulnerabilities
resolved in this release. The most severe is a remotely triggerable
denial of service via carefully crafted TCP ACK packets. The other
vulnerabilities are denials of service that require local system
access; one applies only when mounting minix filesystems, the other
applies to certain process-exit conditions.
A system reboot is required to resolve these vulnerabilities.
