Fedora 14 : monotone-0.48.1-1.fc14 (2010-16888)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Update to monotone-0.48.1, which contains a fix for a DoS :

Running 'mtn ' or 'mtn ls ' doesn't cause an internal error
anymore. In monotone 0.48 and earlier this behavior could be used to
crash a server remotely (but only if it was configured to allow
execution of remote commands). Therefore everyone running such a
server should update as soon as possible.

There's also a fix for a non-critical issue :

Using mtn:// style URIs for netsync operations didn't work with 0.48
on systems which only have a 'monotone' entry in /etc/services.
Failing to find a corresponding entry for the schema in a given URI
isn't considered fatal now, instead mtn falls back to its default
port.

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.
