Fedora 29 : libgit2 (2018-abfd4c6ac3)

High Nessus Plugin ID 120698

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Update to 0.27.5 (CVE-2018-17456). In addition, this update syncs the non-modular libgit2 with the modular version now that we aren't going to enable the default module stream for F29.

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.

Solution

Update the affected libgit2 package.
