Fedora Core 1 : mc-4.6.0-14.10 (2004-112)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 13693


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


Several buffer overflows, several temporary file creation vulnerabilities, and one format string vulnerability have been discovered in Midnight Commander. These vulnerabilities were discovered mostly by Andrew V. Samoilov and Pavel Roskin. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2004-0226, CVE-2004-0231, and CVE-2004-0232 to these issues.

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.


Update the affected mc and / or mc-debuginfo packages.
