Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. Security Fixes: - With the iptables firewall enabled in a certain configuration (as done by SuSEFirewall2) a handcrafted IP packet from a remote attacker could crash the machine. - Some minor addition proc information leaks were fixed. Bug fixes: - 2 CD writing problems were fixed, one in BIO handling and one in highmem bounce buffer handling (machines with more than 1GB RAM). - A problem with write barriers not being issued on IDE drives that default to write cache off was fixed. - Fixed an iptables logging Oops caused by ifdown/ifup sequences. - Fixed a memory corruption in libata. - some other fixes has been integrated, which normally wouldn't hit a Desktop system
