Fedora 11 : xemacs-21.5.29-2.fc11 (2009-8993)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 40865
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update fixes multiple buffer overflows when reading large image files, or maliciously created image files whose headers misrepresent the actual image size. The update also addresses multiple font issues, some of which cause warnings on startup. Some warnings remain, however, unless an ISO8859-13 fonts (e.g., terminus) is installed.
Also note that some warnings remain on Rawhide pending a resolution for bz 507637.
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 xemacs package.
