Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Fix Locale::Maketext vulnerability allowing to cross-call functions
from message catalogs (CVE-2012-6329). App::Cpan(3pm) manual page was
included in two subpackages by mistake. This release keeps the file in
perl-CPAN package only.

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.
