  EnGarde Secure Linux is an enterprise class Linux platform engineered
  to enable corporations to quickly and cost-effectively build a complete
  and secure Internet presence while preventing Internet threats.

OVERVIEW
--------
  This update includes Serial ATA (SATA) support, updated netfilter GRE
  and PPTP conntrack/NAT helpers, and a new 'forcedeth' Ethernet driver
  for nForce2 Ethernet support.

  This update also fixes the following security issues:

    * A buffer overflow in the ISO9660 filesystem (CAN-2004-0109)

    * Information leaks in the XFS, ext3, and JFS filesystems
      (CAN-2004-0133, CAN-2004-0177, and CAN-2004-0181 respectively)

    * A mostly likely non-exploitable bug in the panic() function
      (CAN-2004-0394)

    * A potential memory leak in the do_fork() function's error path

    * An integer overflow in the ip_setsockopt() function (CAN-2004-0424)

  Guardian Digital products affected by this issue include:

    EnGarde Secure Community 2
    EnGarde Secure Professional v1.5

  It is recommended that all users apply this update as soon as possible.
