Fedora 14 : lvm2-2.02.73-1.fc14 (2010-13239)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes some minor problems as listed in the changelog. To
improve performance, Logical Volumes will be aligned at 1MB boundaries
by default now on any newly-created Physical Volumes that don't report
a preferred alignment to the O/S. This update addresses a security
problem when using the clustered LVM daemon clvmd from the package
lvm2-cluster on systems where you have non-root users. The lvm2
package on its own is not vulnerable to this problem but if you are
using lvm2-cluster you must update both together. Further details are
given in the Red Hat Bugzilla:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/CVE-2010-2526 After updating the packages,
make sure that clvmd restarted itself. This update also includes
several other important bug fixes - see the detailed changelog.

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.
