Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2013-7305
2013-05-03 01:09:44
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : gpsd
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 3.9
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://catb.org/gpsd/
Summary     : Service daemon for mediating access to a GPS
Description :
gpsd is a service daemon that mediates access to a GPS sensor
connected to the host computer by serial or USB interface, making its
data on the location/course/velocity of the sensor available to be
queried on TCP port 2947 of the host computer.  With gpsd, multiple
GPS client applications (such as navigational and wardriving software)
can share access to a GPS without contention or loss of data.  Also,
gpsd responds to queries with a format that is substantially easier to
parse than NMEA 0183.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This is an update to the latest upstream release, which fixes a denial of
service flaw found in the way AIS driver packet parser processed certain
malformed packets.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- update to 3.9 (#958717)
