Fedora 10 : python-fedora-0.3.9-1.fc10 (2009-1518)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This release includes a bugfix to the
fedora.client.AccountSystem().verify_password() method.
verify_password() was incorrectly returning True (username, password
combination was correct) for any input. Although no known code is
using this method to verify a user's account with the Fedora Account
System, the existence of the method and the fact that anyone using
this would be allowing users due to the bug makes this a high priority
bug to fix.

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.
