RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:1024

The remote host is missing updates to the kernel announced in advisory RHSA-2009:1024. Security Fixes: * the exit_notify() function in the Linux kernel did not properly reset the exit signal if a process executed a set user ID (setuid) application before exiting. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to elevate their privileges. (CVE-2009-1337, Important) * the Linux kernel implementation of the Network File System (NFS) did not properly initialize the file name limit in the nfs_server data structure. This flaw could possibly lead to a denial of service on a client mounting an NFS share. (CVE-2009-1336, Moderate) For information on additional bug fixes made in this package, please visit the referenced security advisories.
