Fedora 15 : usbmuxd-1.0.7-3.fc15 (2012-1213)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 58014
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected usbmuxd package.
