Fedora 17 : libgssglue-0.4-0.fc17 (2012-7971)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 59531


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- Fix for CVE-2011-2709 Patch from Marcus Meissner Note:
Although https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=694598 mentions mount.nfs, libgssglue is not used by mount.nfs.

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 libgssglue package.
