Fedora 10 : ntop-3.3.8-3.fc10 (2009-2805)

High Nessus Plugin ID 37197


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


ls -lh /var/log/ntop/access.log -rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 0 2009-02-04 11:53 /var/log/ntop/access.log Fixed. log world-writable when the
--access-log- file option is used. This option is not used in Fedora or Red Hat by default and is not noted in the configuration file. It is, however, noted in the ntop manpage. It would require the root user to add this option to the configuration in order for this file to be created.

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 ntop package.
