Fedora 7 : blam-1.8.3-9.fc7 (2007-3792)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 28342


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update resolves a low severity security issue where LD_LIBRARY_PATH could potentially get set to the current directory if it wasn't set before Blam was launched.

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 blam and / or blam-debuginfo packages.
