Fedora 11 : nss_db-2.2-46.fc11 (2010-6331)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 47431
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionStephane Chazelas reported that the nss_db module attempts to read a DB_CONFIG file in the current directory when it is used. If the contents of the file can't be parsed properly, the copy of libdb which nss_db uses will print an error message. If nss_db is invoked from a setuid process, it may then expose privileged information to the unprivileged user who started the process. This update imports Kees Cook's fix for the issue (CVE-2010-0826).
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 nss_db package.
