Fedora 23 : glibc (2016-b2dfb591cd)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 92145
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.
