Fedora Security Team 90-Day Challenge to clean up vulnerabilities… an update


At the beginning of April, the Fedora Security Team (FST) started on a journey to close all critical and important CVEs in Fedora and EPEL that had originated in 2014 and before.  Now that we’re two-thirds the way through I figured it would be a good time to see what we’ve accomplished so far.

Of the 38 CVEs (37 important and 1 critical) we originally identified: 14 have been closed, 1 is currently on QA, and 23 remain open.  The 14 closed CVEs represent around a third of all the identified CVEs.  So, not bad but also not great; there is still work to be done.

If you want to help get some of these CVEs cleaned up here’s a list of the target packages.  We need to make sure that upstream has fixed the problem and that the packagers are pushing these fixes into the repos.

  • ytnef
  • mediatomb
  • rubygem-httparty
  • rubygem-extlib
  • rubygem-crack
  • nagios
  • libmicrohttpd
  • directfb
  • nagios-plugins
  • dcmtk
  • sahana
  • opensaml-java
  • s3ql
  • tomcat
  • openstack-keystone
  • phpMemcachedAdmin

I hope to come back to you at the end of the month with a report on how all of the CVEs were fixed and who helped fix them!
