Fedora 17 : cifs-utils-5.5-2.fc17 (2012-10421)

High Nessus Plugin ID 60073


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update enables some extra security features in the executables (specifically, PIE and RELRO support).

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 cifs-utils package.
