Fedora 22 : xorg-x11-server (2015-10336)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 92046
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpstream stable release of xserver 1.17.2 fix bug with glamor and overlapping copies (CVE-2015-3164) Due to an omission in authentication setup, the XWayland server would start up in non-authenticating mode, meaning that any client with access to the server's UNIX socket was able to connect to the server and use it as a regular client.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected xorg-x11-server package.
