Fedora 27 : libbson (2018-77d864ff39)

High Nessus Plugin ID 117814


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This release fixes a heap-based buffer over-read when parsing a mallformed BSON document (CVE-2018-16790).

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 libbson package.
