Fedora 7 : t1lib-5.1.1-3.fc7 (2007-2343)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This is most likely not exploitable on Fedora, due to FORTIFY_SOURCE
protection, as the overflow is strcat() call which is protected.

This update has a patch that avoids the call where the overflow would
occur.

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.
