Summary:
Check for the Version of kernel

Affected Versions:
kernel on CentOS 4

Recommendations:
Please Install the Updated Packages.

Technical Details:
The kernel Linux Distribution Packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues: * a flaw was found in each of the following Intel PRO/1000 Linux drivers in the Linux kernel: e1000 and e1000e. A remote attacker using packets larger than the MTU could bypass the existing fragment check, resulting in partial, invalid frames being passed to the network stack. These flaws could also possibly be used to trigger a remote denial of service. (CVE-2009-4536, CVE-2009-4538, Important) * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. Receiving overly-long frames with network cards supported by this driver could possibly result in a remote denial of service. (CVE-2009-4537, Important) Users should upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
