Fedora 7 : viewvc-1.0.5-1.fc7 (2008-2143)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

These security issues have been fixed: - omit commits of all-forbidden
files from query results - disallow direct URL navigation to hidden
CVSROOT folder - strip forbidden paths from revision view - don't
traverse log history thru forbidden locations - honor forbiddenness
via diff view path parameters

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
