Fedora 16 : boost-1.47.0-7.fc16 (2012-9029)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 59840
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
Description- This update fixes a bug in Boost.Pool, which could under certain circumstances overflow allocated chunk size.
This could have security implications for applications that use Boost pool without sanitizing pool parameters.
- Add a sub-package boost-math with math-related bits from Boost.TR1. This was left out by mistake.
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 boost package.
