Fedora 10 : xemacs-21.5.28-10.fc10 (2009-8997)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 40866
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.
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.
