Fedora 12 : nss_db-2.2-47.fc12 (2010-6361)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Stephane Chazelas reported that the nss_db module attempts to read a
DB_CONFIG file in the current directory when it is used. If the
contents of the file can't be parsed properly, the copy of libdb which
nss_db uses will print an error message. If nss_db is invoked from a
setuid process, it may then expose privileged information to the
unprivileged user who started the process. This update imports Kees
Cook's fix for the issue (CVE-2010-0826).

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.
