Fedora 12 : libtlen-0-0.10.20060309.fc12 (2010-17762)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 50673


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update unbundles the old copy of expat included in libtlen, fixing CVE-2009-3720 and possibly other vulnerabilities already fixed in system expat.

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 libtlen package.
