Fedora 13 : SimGear-2.0.0-5.fc13 (2011-5744)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53607


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.
