Fedora 15 : xkeyboard-config-2.3-3.fc15 (2012-0709)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57672


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Remove Ungrab/ClearGrab actions from the default keymap. This is a preventative update for xkeyboard-config to avoid triggering bug 783044 in the future. Fedora 15 currently does not ship an X server version that is affected by this bug.

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 xkeyboard-config package.
