Fedora Core 3 : xloadimage-4.1-34.FC3 (2005-237)

high Nessus Plugin ID 19629
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update fixes CVE-2005-0638, a problem in the parsing of shell metacharacters in filenames. It also fixes bugs in handling of malformed TIFF and PBM/PNM/PPM 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 xloadimage and / or xloadimage-debuginfo packages.
