Fedora 18 : pl-6.0.2-5.fc18 (2013-0178)

High Nessus Plugin ID 63525


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fix two buffer overflows when expanding file name glob (CVE-2012-6090) and when canonizing path (CVE-2012-6089).

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 pl package.
