Fedora 18 : gegl-0.2.0-11.fc18 (2013-12108)

High Nessus Plugin ID 67337


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update contains the following changes :

- Fix buffer overflow in and add plausibility checks to the ppm-load operation.

- Fix multi-lib issue where content of generated documentation could differ between architectures.

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 gegl package.
