Fedora 16 : usbmuxd-1.0.7-3.fc16 (2012-1192)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Fixes CVE-2012-0065

It was discovered that usbmuxd did not correctly perform bounds
checking when processing the SerialNumber field of USB devices. An
attacker with physical access could use this to crash usbmuxd or
potentially execute arbitrary code as the 'usbmux' user.

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.
