Fedora 16 : usbmuxd-1.0.7-3.fc16 (2012-1192)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 58013


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fixes CVE-2012-0065

It was discovered that usbmuxd did not correctly perform bounds checking when processing the SerialNumber field of USB devices. An attacker with physical access could use this to crash usbmuxd or potentially execute arbitrary code as the 'usbmux' user.

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 usbmuxd package.
