Fedora 18 : perl-Module-Signature-0.73-1.fc18 (2013-10430)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update ensures that digest modules are only loaded from absolute
paths in @INC, avoiding a potential arbitrary code execution problem
(CVE-2013-2145).

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.
