Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This release addresses two security vulerabilities in the package: -
shell command injection in CGI replication monitor (CVE-2008-0892) -
unrestricted access to CGI scripts (CVE-2008-0893) Fix Description:
Remove ScriptAlias for bin/admin/admin/bin - do not use that directory
for CGI URIs - use only protected URIs for CGIs requiring
authentication Remove most CGI parameters from repl-monitor-cgi.pl -
user must supply replmon.conf in the admin server config directory
instead of passing in this pathname - repl-monitor-cgi.pl does not use
system to call repl-monitor.pl, it 'includes' that script (using perl
import).

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.
