Fedora 16 : python3-3.2.3-2.fc16 (2012-9135) (BEAST)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Fixes debug build systemtap support. Rebase of python3 from 3.2.1 to
3.2.3 bringing in security fixes, along with many other bug fixes. The
compiled *.pyc and *.pyo files are now properly compiled so python3
doesn't try to recompile them over and over on runtime anymore.

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.
