Fedora 9 : pdfjam-1.21-1.fc9 (2009-2655)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 35927


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


PDFjam scripts previously create temporary files with predictable names, and are also susceptible to the search path being modified.
This update fixes the two issues.

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 pdfjam package.
