Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : slocate
Version     : 2.7                      
Release     : 22.fc4.1                  
Summary     : Finds files on a system via a central database.
Description :
Slocate is a security-enhanced version of locate. Just like locate,
slocate searches through a central database (which is updated nightly)
for files that match a given pattern. Slocate allows you to quickly
find files anywhere on your system.

Update Information:

A carefully prepared directory structure could stop the
updatedb file system scan, resulting in an incomplete slocate
database. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has
assigned the name CAN-2005-2499 to this issue.

* Tue Aug  9 2005 Miloslav Trmac <mitr at redhat.com> - 2.7-22.fc4.1
- Replace sl_fs.[ch] by glibc-derived versions
- Skip subtrees with paths longer than 32k
