Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'glibc' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the FEDORA-2020-c32e4b271c advisory.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:

Without these two libraries, a Linux system will not function.

'glibc' Linux Distribution Package(s) on Fedora 30.

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Package(s).

Vendor Patch

Detection Type:
