New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update addresses a security problem when using the clustered LVM daemon clvmd from the package lvm2-cluster on systems where you have non-root users.

The lvm2 package on its own is not vulnerable to this problem but if you are using lvm2-cluster you must update both together.

Further details are given in the Red Hat Bugzilla:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/CVE-2010-2526

After updating the packages, make sure that clvmd restarted itself.

This update also includes several other important bug fixes - see the detailed changelog.

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.

Solution

Update the affected lvm2 package.
