Fedora 18 : telepathy-idle-0.1.15-1.fc18 (2013-6534)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This release validate TLS certificates properly, preventing
man-in-the-middle attacks.

This will be a regression for users of IRC-over-SSL servers/proxies
that do not have a certificate trusted by system-wide CA
configuration; they will no longer be able to connect. If someone
implements fd.o #57130, that will provide the ability for those users
to approve additional certificates.

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.
