Fedora Core 9 FEDORA-2009-1069 (dnsmasq)
The remote host is missing an update to dnsmasq announced via advisory FEDORA-2009-1069.
Update Information: Update to newer upstream version - 2.45. Version of dnsmasq previously shipped in Fedora 9 did not properly drop privileges, causing it to run as root instead of intended user nobody. Issue was caused by a bug in kernel-headers used in build environment of the original packages. (#454415) New upstream version also adds DNS query source port randomization, mitigating DNS spoofing attacks. (CVE-2008-1447) ChangeLog: * Mon Jul 21 2008 Patrick Jima Laughton 2.45-1 - Upstream release (bugfixes) * Wed Jul 16 2008 Patrick Jima Laughton 2.43-2 - New upstream release, contains fixes for CVE-2008-1447/CERT VU#800113 - Dropped patch for newer glibc (merged upstream)
Apply the appropriate updates. This update can be installed with the yum update program. Use su -c 'yum update dnsmasq' at the command line.
