Fedora 18 : sleuthkit-4.0.1-1.fc18 (2013-0320)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 63650


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


New Features: More DOS partition types are displayed. Added fcat tool that takes in file name and exports content (equivalent to using ifind and icat together). performance improvements with FAT code (maps and dir_add) performance improvements with NTFS code (maps) added AONLY flag to block_walk Updated blkls and blkcalc to use AONLY flag -- MUCH faster.

Bug Fixes: Fixed mactime issue where it could choose the wrong timezone that did not follow daylight savings times. Fixed file size of alternate data streams in framework. Incorporated memory leak fixes and raw device fixes from ADF Solutions.

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 sleuthkit package.
