Before applying the update, kcare-uname -r reported:


After applying the update kcare-uname -r reports:


Is this information correct? Is this an oversight some where?

Hi, Scott! Effective or safe version displayed by some tools from 'kernelcare' package may only serve as a rough estimation of patched kernel's safeness. It may be more useful to check detailed information about all vulnerabilities addressed by the patch in 'kcarectl --patch-info' output. Nevertheless, after the latest release, effective version for kernel 2.6.32-042stab123.3 should be fixed (2.6.32-042stab123.8).
