Fedora 11 : xemacs-21.5.29-2.fc11 (2009-8993)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes multiple buffer overflows when reading large image
files, or maliciously created image files whose headers misrepresent
the actual image size. The update also addresses multiple font issues,
some of which cause warnings on startup. Some warnings remain,
however, unless an ISO8859-13 fonts (e.g., terminus) is installed.
Also note that some warnings remain on Rawhide pending a resolution
for bz 507637.

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.
