Fedora 8 : audit-1.6.8-4.fc8 (2008-3012)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31825
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis release fixes the init script headers to not provide LSB info.
This was causing audit to start too late. It also fixes a problem where saddr fields were not being decoded correctly on avc events in ausearch. This also fixes a buffer overflow in audit_log_user_command that is caught by FORTIFY_SOURCE, resulting in an application crash.
sudo is the only application known to use this vulnerable function.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected audit package.
