Fedora 16 : perl-Pod-Plainer-1.03-1.fc16 (2012-5155)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

The perl(Pod::Plainer) is requred by LSB 4.1, but was obsoleted by the
Perl upstream. So new software MUST NOT uses this module.

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.
