Fedora 23 : glibc (2016-b2dfb591cd)

High Nessus Plugin ID 92145

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This updated addresses a minor security vulnerability in the Sun RPC client (CVE-2016-4429), increases compatibility with GCC 6, and addresses a problem which caused `fork` to crash when `BIND_NOW` was used for linking shared objects.

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.

Solution

Update the affected glibc package.
