Fedora 7 : bochs-2.3-7.fc7 (2007-1778)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 27733


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This security update of bochs fixes CVE-2007-2894 :

The emulated floppy disk controller in Bochs 2.3 allows local users of the guest operating system to cause a denial of service (virtual machine crash) via unspecified vectors, resulting in a divide-by-zero error.

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 packages.
