Fedora 17 : glibc-2.15-54.fc17 (2012-11508)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61556
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAvoid unbound alloca in vfprintf (#841318)
Revert patch for BZ696143, it made it impossible to use IPV6 addresses explicitly in getaddrinfo, which in turn broke ssh, apache and other code. (#808147)
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 glibc package.
