Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : alsa-lib
Version : 1.0.6
Release : 7.FC3
Summary : The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) library.
Description :
The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) provides audio and MIDI functionality to the Linux operating system.

This package includes the ALSA runtime libraries to simplify application programming and provide higher level functionality as well as support for the older OSS API, providing binary compatibility for most OSS programs.

Update Information:

A flaw in the alsa mixer code was discovered, which disabled stack execution protection for the libasound.so library distributed with Fedora Core 3. The effect of this flaw resulted in stack execution protection, through NX or Exec-Shield, which was disabled for any application linked to libasound.

Updated version of alsa-lib package sorts out this problem.
