Fedora 7 : centerim-4.22.4-1.fc7.1 (2008-2869)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes the CVE-2008-1467 security issue by disabling the
'actions' configuration altogether. Furthermore the default web
browser is no longer configurable in CenterIM. The links get open in
the default web browser configured, using xdg-utils. There won't be
any update for centericq. All users of centericq packages are advised
to switch to centerim. In Fedora 7 centerim package provides symbolic
link 'centericq' that points to centerim binary for compatibility with
centericq. Note that centerim packages in later releases of Fedora no
longer provide this. CenterIM will automatically use CenterICQ
settings if ones are found in all releases of Fedora. This release
adds support for new versions of Yahoo IM protocol. Unless you apply
this update, you won't be able to use Yahoo IM after April 2nd 2008.
Please note: To avoid compatibility and confidentiality problems with
an undocumented protocol transported unencrypted over third-party
controlled network, all users of Yahoo IM protocol are encouraged to
switch to open and free alternatives, such as XMPP used in Jabber
network.

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.
