Fedora 18 : libuv-0.10.3-1.fc18 / nodejs-0.10.2-1.fc18 / v8-3.14.5.8-1.fc18 (2012-20578)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily
building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an
event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and
efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run
across distributed devices.

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.
