Fedora 19 : rrdtool-1.4.8-2.fc19 (2013-10288)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 67277


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This 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.


Update the affected rrdtool package.
