Fedora 14 : oprofile-0.9.6-21.fc14 (2011-8087)
High Nessus Plugin ID 55676
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionWhen opcontrol was run by a normal user with sudo access it was possible for the user to craft options to opcontrol that would allow commands to be run with root privileges.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected oprofile package.
