Fedora 8 : xine-lib- (2008-2849)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31815


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description (security update, #438663, CVE-2008-1482). Provide versioned xine- lib(plugin-abi) so 3rd party packages installing plugins can use it instead of requiring a version of xine-lib.

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 xine-lib package.
