Fedora 16 : colord-0.1.15-1.fc16 (2011-16453)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57004


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- New upstream version

- This release fixes an important security bug:

- Do not crash the daemon if adding the device to the db failed

- Fix a memory leak when getting properties from a device

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 colord package.
