Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am working on linux kernel-2.4.17-rt3.1 version, which is vulnerabile, to local unpriviliged users with reference to CVE:2007-5001.
* a flaw was found when performing asynchronous input or output operations
on a FIFO special file. A local unprivileged user could use this flaw to
cause a kernel panic. (CVE-2007-5001, Important)
* Bugzilla Bug 326251: CVE-2007-5001 kernel asynchronous IO on a FIFO kernel panic.
Using asynchronous IO on a FIFO causes RHEL 3U9 to kernel panic.
(Does not occur in RHEL 4 as the pipe_write function has been re-written)
This is a security issue because a local unprivileged user can cause a kernel panic.
The solution for this, is available in the following rpm:
But this rpm gives a mixed solution for other CVE's also, it is not giving a seperate patch for the CVE:2007-5001.We have searched almost all site's, but didn't got it.
Is any body know where can we find a seperate patch for this vulnerability (CVE:2007-5001), please do reply.
