Fedora 22 : compat-libuv010-0.10.34-1.fc22 (2015-2563)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 81840


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


It was found that libuv does not call setgoups before calling setuid/setgid. This may potentially allow an attacker to gain elevated privileges.

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 compat-libuv010 package.
