Fedora 15 : libcgroup-0.37.1-1.fc15 (2011-2638)

High Nessus Plugin ID 52982


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Two security bugs were fixed in this release :

- CVE-2011-1006: Heap-based buffer overflow by converting list of controllers for given task into an array of strings

- CVE-2011-1022: Unchecked origin of NETLINK messages

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 libcgroup package.
