Fedora 19 : glibc-2.17-14.fc19 (2013-15316)

High Nessus Plugin ID 69488

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.7

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

systemd is now required during build so that installing or updating nscd does not result in any warnings. rtkaio bits are now tested correctly.

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.

Solution

Update the affected glibc package.
