Fedora 8 : blam-1.8.3-11.fc8 (2007-3798)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 28343
New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

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.

Solution

Update the affected blam and / or blam-debuginfo packages.
