Fedora 17 : trousers-0.3.9-1.fc17 (2012-12973)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62020


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update closes a small security issue where a remote user could crash tscd if it were enabled for networking. This update also has improved init scripts which should make it load quicker.

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 trousers package.
