Fedora 11 : gnash-0.8.6-13.fc11 (2010-1833)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 47274


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update makes Gnash use the system version of the libltdl library instead of the bundled copy which was vulnerable to CVE-2009-3736. An update to the system libltdl fixing CVE-2009-3736 was issued on December 21, 2009.

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 gnash package.
