Fedora 15 : libvoikko-3.2.1-1.fc15 (2011-8227)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Backport a security fix from version 3.2.1: Fix handling of embedded
null characters in input strings entered through the Python interface.
The bug could be used to cause denial of service conditions and
possibly other problems. Users of these interfaces are recommended to
upgrade to this release. Applications that use the native C++ library
directly (this includes all well known desktop applications) are not
affected by this bug and no changes to the native library have been
made in this release.

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.
