Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 4 2005-770: slocate

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the slocate package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-770 (slocate).

Slocate is a security-enhanced version of locate. Just like locate,
slocate searches through a central database (which is updated nightly)
for files that match a given pattern. Slocate permits you to quickly
find files anywhere on your system.

Update Information:

A carefully prepared directory structure could stop the
updatedb file system scan, resulting in an incomplete slocate
database. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has
assigned the name CVE-2005-2499 to this issue.
