Fedora 19 : rrdtool-1.4.8-2.fc19 (2013-10288)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 67277
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis is an update that adds explicit check to the imginfo format. It may prevent crash/exploit of user space applications which pass user supplied format to the library call without checking. This is an new version of rrdtool that fixes several bugs. The main new feature of this release is that large graph expressions are processed magnitudes faster. For more details see the original announcement http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/forum.en.html#nabble-f937719
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected rrdtool package.
