Fedora 14 : tmux-1.4-3.fc14 (2011-5167)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53463


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


tmux didn't drop group privileges correctly in all cases.

This is fixed by using an updated patch originating from the debian tmux package.

Fixes RHBZ #694563, CVE-2011-1496

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 tmux package.
