Fedora 13 : systemtap-1.4-6.fc13 (2011-7289)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Two divide-by-zero flaws were found in the way systemtap interpreted
certain corrupted DWARF expressions. A privileged user able to execute
arbitrary systemtap scripts could be tricked into triggering this flaw
to crash the target machine. An unprivileged user (in the stapusr
group) may be able to trigger this flaw to crash the target machine,
only if unprivileged mode was enabled by the system administrator.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
