Fedora 15 : SimGear-2.0.0-5.fc15 (2011-5777)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 53565
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.


SimGear had an old (and potentially vulnerable to CVE-2009-3720) bundled copy of expat (which was fixed for this vulnerability at Fedora 9).

This update package uses the system expat library to resolve this issue.

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 SimGear package.
