Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

A format string flaw was found in the way Ekiga processes certain
messages. If a user is running Ekiga, a remote attacker who can
connect to Ekiga could trigger this flaw and potentially execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user.

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.
