Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

What's new in WebKitGTK+ 1.10.2? ================================

- WebCore has been split in a few more convenience libtool
libraries, which should fix problems with linking in
some architectures and with make's command line length
limit.

- WebKit2 introspection files will also be built if
introspection is enabled.

- Includes fixes for the following CVEs: CVE-2012-5112,
CVE-2012-5133

- Web audio has been fixed to use a GstBuffer per-channel
when looping, which sidesteps a race when dealing with
the object references. It also got improvements to error
handling and ease of testing when loading resources.

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.
