Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes the following security issue :

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way PC/SC Lite
smart card framework decoded certain attribute values of the
Answer-to-Reset (ATR) message, received back from the card after
connecting. A local attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the pcscd daemon, via a
malicious smart card inserted to the system USB port.

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.
