Description

  • Patch :

  • Avoid invalid free and crash explicitly instead of silently enabling the caller to commit undefined behaviour.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
