Fedora 15 : gdm-3.0.4-1.fc15 (2011-7822)

High Nessus Plugin ID 54979


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a flaw that can lead to web browser at the login screen if policykit policies are changed to be more restrictive than defaults.

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 gdm package.
