Debian DLA-1434-1 : linux-base update
High Nessus Plugin ID 111171
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe linux-base package has been updated to support the package of Linux 4.9 that was recently added to Debian 8. This resolves a dependency that was not satisfiable by the jessie and jessie-security suites.
This update also fixes a bug in version ordering in the linux-version command, corrects the package name printed by the perf command when linux-perf-4.9 is needed, and adds bash-completion support for the perf command.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', the new version is 4.5~deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your linux-base packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected linux-base package.
