Fedora 11 : xar-1.5.2-6.fc11 (2010-7670)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 47471


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes CVE-2010-0055, an issue where xar did not properly validate package signatures, which allows attackers to have an unspecified impact via a modified package.

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 xar package.
