Fedora 9 : WebKit-1.0.0-0.11.svn34655.fc9 (2008-6186)

High Nessus Plugin ID 33453


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This updated WebKit snapshot fixes CVE-2008-2307. (A memory corruption issue exists in WebKit's handling of JavaScript arrays. Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution.)

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 WebKit package.
