Fedora 10 : pptp-1.7.2-5.fc10 (2009-3070)

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

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update corrects the behaviour of pptpsetup when its --delete
option is used, retaining the permissions of /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
rather than creating a new file that is likely to be world-readable.
If you have previously used the --delete option of pptpsetup, you
should reset the permissions of /etc/ppp/chap- secrets to their
default value of 0600 unless you have good reasons to use another
value: # chmod 600 /etc/ppp/chap-secrets

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.
