Fedora 9 : git-1.6.0.6-4.fc9 (2009-6809)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes a Denial of Service vulnerability in git-daemon. It
also fixes minor issues when using git-cvsimport and the formatting of
the git-daemon xinetd service description.

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.
