Fedora 12 : konversation-1.2.3-1.fc12 (2010-1935)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Update to version 1.2.3, which fixes remote crash caused by a message
containing invalid Unicode characters. If the message triggers a
KNotify notification, invalid Unicode string is sent over D-Bus,
resulting in application crash. Apart from that, the earlier update to
1.2.2 included lots of fixes for DCC- related functions like DCC Chat
and DCC file transfers, stability fixes that address a number of
crashbugs. Refer to upstream release notes for the full list of issues
addressed in new version: http://konversation.kde.org/

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.
