    You are running an insecure kernel (2.4.18-27.7.x). You should upgrade to a newer version as soon as possible to avoid your system being compromised.

    Shell into your box and run

    up2date --nox -f kernel

    Reboot the box and you are in business.

    I did this and still get the warning.

    You are running an insecure kernel (2.4.18-27.7.xsmp). You should upgrade to a newer version as soon as possible to avoid your system being compromised.


    I EVEN REBOOTED.

    Tried running it again and I get

    root@ns [~]# up2date --nox -f kernel

    I believe that's--worked without a hitch. Definition of hitch: To become entangled, snarled, or fastened.
    I'm fairly confident you mean dual. Definition of duel: A prearranged, formal combat between two persons; usually fought to settle a point of honor.
