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

High Nessus Plugin ID 69488


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


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.


Update the affected glibc package.
