Fedora Core 3 : sysreport-1.3.13-2 (2005-1072)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 20192


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


It is possible for a local attacker to cause a race condition and trick sysreport into writing its output to a directory the attacker can read.

The new sysreport fixes this security 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 sysreport package.
