Fedora Core 3 : ethereal-0.10.12-1.FC3.2 (2005-690)

High Nessus Plugin ID 19379


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


To reduce the risk of future vulnerabilities in Ethereal, the ethereal and tethereal programs in this update have been compiled as Position Independent Executables (PIE).

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 ethereal, ethereal-debuginfo and / or ethereal-gnome packages.
