High Nessus Plugin ID 64901


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update contains a fix for the netlink out-of-bounds access issue which could allow a local user to gain privileged access. All users are encouraged to update.

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 kernel package.
