Fedora 12 : gnome-xcf-thumbnailer-1.0-4.fc12 (2010-17041)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes potential stack-based buffer overflows that can
allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and
possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted image that causes a
conversion to a location 'above or to the left of the canvas.'

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.
