Fedora 17 : cloud-init-0.6.3-0.5.bzr532.fc17 (2012-14121)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update changes the URL that cloud-init uses as a fallback for
instance metadata when http://169.254.169.254/ is not reachable from
http://instance-data:8773/ to http://instance-data.:8773/ . It also
fixes two systemd-related bugs.

Note that the former will require DNS server reconfiguration in setups
with Eucalyptus clouds in System or Static modes.

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.
