Fedora 9 : python-formencode-1.0.1-1.fc9 (2008-6312)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

The formencode package helps create validators that can check and
manipulate user input before passing it to the rest of the program.
Version 1.0 silently ignored one class of validators
(chained_validators) that run over a set of user input rather than
individual pieces. Version 1.0.1 fixes that so chained_validators are
run as expected.

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.
