Fedora 14 : libtlen-0-0.10.20060309.fc14 (2010-17720)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 50698


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.


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.
