FEDORA-2017-6bfa33dd9d created by pghmcfc 3 years ago for Fedora 24
stable

With the previous security update for CVE-2017-7418, setting AllowChrootSymlinks off could cause login failures depending on filesystem permissions. This fixed release uses the IDs of the logging-in user to perform the directory walk, looking for symlinks, to be more consistent with similar checks done during login.

How to install

sudo dnf upgrade --advisory=FEDORA-2017-6bfa33dd9d
