Fedora 15 : glibc-2.14.1-5 (2012-0018)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 57584
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.


Revert change from -6 which filtered out GLIBC_PRIVATE symbols. Not appropriate for an update release.

Check values from TZ file header (#767696) Convert tzdata-update to lua (#743034) Mark __clone as .cantunwind (#749556) Update to 2.24.1 release Correctly reparse group line after enlarging the buffer (#739360) Avoid race between {,de}allocate_stack and reclaim_stacks during fork

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 glibc package.
