Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-771
2005-08-22
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : slocate
Version : 2.7
Release : 12.fc3.1
Summary : Finds files on a system via a central database.
Description :
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 allows 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 CAN-2005-2499 to this issue.
