Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

The following security issues have been discovered in Bugzilla :

- When abusing the X-FORWARDED-FOR header, an attacker
could bypass the lockout policy allowing a possible
brute-force discovery of a valid user password.

- An attacker can get access to some bug information using
the victim's credentials using a specially crafted HTML
page.

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.
