Fedora 14 : SimGear-2.0.0-5.fc14 (2011-5727)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

SimGear had an old (and potentially vulnerable to CVE-2009-3720)
bundled copy of expat (which was fixed for this vulnerability at
Fedora 9).

This update package uses the system expat library to resolve this
issue.

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.
