Fedora 7 : t1lib-5.1.1-3.fc7 (2007-2343)

High Nessus Plugin ID 27767


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This is most likely not exploitable on Fedora, due to FORTIFY_SOURCE protection, as the overflow is strcat() call which is protected.

This update has a patch that avoids the call where the overflow would occur.

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 t1lib, t1lib-debuginfo and / or t1lib-devel packages.
