Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62883


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This updates a recently found heap buffer overflow issue in IcedTea web. It fixes :

CVE-2012-4540 icedtea-web: IcedTeaScriptableJavaObject::invoke off-by-one heap-based buffer overflow

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.
