Fedora 25 : lxterminal / menu-cache / pcmanfm (2017-6950ea5d05)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 100228


The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.


A potential security flaw is found on LXDE products, which create socket under /tmp with some predictable names, which may leads to DOS.
The security flow on lxterminal is now assigned as CVE-2016-10369.
Some other components also had similar issues. These new rpms should fix these issues.

At least relogin is required to make this fix effect.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected lxterminal, menu-cache and / or pcmanfm packages.
