Fedora 7 : python-2.5-14.fc7 (2007-2663)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27785


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes: Multiple integer overflows in the imageop module (#295971) Also included are a dependency fix on binutils (#307221), so the ctypes module works, and a tkinter fix when dealing with zero length text in some widgets (#281751).

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.
