Fedora 10 : ntop-3.3.8-3.fc10 (2009-2805)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

ls -lh /var/log/ntop/access.log -rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 0 2009-02-04
11:53 /var/log/ntop/access.log Fixed. log world-writable when the
--access-log- file option is used. This option is not used in Fedora
or Red Hat by default and is not noted in the configuration file. It
is, however, noted in the ntop manpage. It would require the root user
to add this option to the configuration in order for this file to be
created.

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.
