Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

o Updated upstream fix for sprintf integer overflow vulnerabilities
CVE-2005-3962 and CVE-2005-3912, including new Sys::Syslog 0.08

o Updated fix for bug 136009 / MakeMaker LD_RUN_PATH issue: restore
previous default Red Hat behavior of removing the MakeMaker generated
LD_RUN_PATH setting from the link command .Document this removal, as
it contravenes upstream default behavior, and provide a
USE_MM_LD_RUN_PATH MakeMaker member to enable use of the MakeMaker
generated LD_RUN_PATH .

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
