Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

CHANGES in 1.1.2: - security fix: validate the 'view' parameter to
avoid XSS attack - security fix: avoid printing illegal parameter
names and values - add optional support for character encoding
detection (issue #400) - fix username case handling in svnauthz module
(issue #419) - fix cvsdbadmin/svnadmin rebuild error on missing repos
(issue #420) - don't drop leading blank lines from colorized file
contents (issue #422) - add file.ezt template logic for optionally
hiding binary file contents Also includes: Install and populate
mimetypes.conf. This should hopefully help when colouring syntax using
pygments. Install and populate mimetypes.conf.

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.
