Fedora 10 : perl-5.10.0-73.fc10 (2009-7680)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This security update fixes an off-by-one overflow in
Compress::Raw::Zlib (CVE-2009-1391) Moreover, it contains a subtle
change to the configuration that does not affect the Perl interpreter
itself, but fixes the propagation of the chosen options to the
modules. For example, a rebuild of perl-Wx against perl-5.10.0-73 will
fix bug 508496.

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.
