Fedora 12 : perl-POE-Component-IRC-6.14-1.fc12.1 (2010-8904)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Plugs a security hole by simplifying privmsg handler: Removed the
undocumented behavior of concatenating multiple arguments. It only
accepts one argument now, and newlines/CR in a message (and everything
following them) will be stripped as with other commands.

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.
