Description

Current upstream maintenance release for the 1.3.5 series.

Includes fix for CVE-2017-7418, where not all path elements were checked for symlinks when using a chroot, so attackers with local access could bypass the AllowChrootSymlinks control by replacing a path component (other than the last one) with a symbolic link.

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.
