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

High Nessus Plugin ID 19629


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.
