Fedora 16 : xchat-ruby-1.2-11.fc16 (2012-1334)

High Nessus Plugin ID 57904


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fixes a remote-triggerable NULL pointer dereference (occurs under certain conditions; see the bug for more details).

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 xchat-ruby package.
