Fedora 20 : e2fsprogs-1.42.12-2.fc20 (2015-2279)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 81430


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Changes e2fsck.conf so that for filesystems with time-based check intervals set in the superblock, these time-based checks will work again. You may need to wait through an e2fsck on your next reboot in this case. New upstream release Security fix for CVE-2015-0247

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 e2fsprogs package.
