Fedora Core 1 : coreutils-5.0-34.1 (2004-091)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62243


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


An updated coreutils package is available fixing an issue in the ls(1) utility, described at :


Note that this vulnerability affects Internet-facing services which execute ls(1) with user-supplied input, and although wu-ftpd is one such service it is not supplied with Fedora Core 1.

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 coreutils and / or coreutils-debuginfo packages.
