Fedora 18 : kdelibs-4.9.2-11.fc18 (2012-17234)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62875


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- CVE-2012-4515

- Fix crash when trying to reuse a frame with a null part

- Cache solid device information in open/save dialog, improving overall performance of the dialog (and making the dialog usable again with slow devices because we don't poll udisks2 that much)

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 kdelibs package.
