Fedora 9 : xastir-1.9.2-9.fc9 (2008-7541)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Multiple insecure temporary file usage flaws were identified in the
get- maptools.sh and get_shapelib.sh scripts shipped in xastir
packages. As those scripts are not needed with Fedora-distributed
xastir packages (they automate installation of libraries used by
xastir, which are provided in the Fedora archive in the pre-packaged
RPM format), they were removed.

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.
