Fedora 13 : perl-File-FcntlLock-0.12-1.fc13 / perl-Mail-Box-2.097-1.fc13 (2011-2531)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Update perl-Mail-Box to 2.097. No longer require spamassassin. 2.097
now randomizes boundary string to avoid (undemonstrated) security
risks with boundary guessing.

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.
