Fedora Core 4 : slocate-2.7-22.fc4.1 (2005-770)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 19480


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


A carefully prepared directory structure could stop the updatedb file system scan, resulting in an incomplete slocate database. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2005-2499 to this issue.

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 slocate and / or slocate-debuginfo packages.
