Fedora 18 : cgit-0.9.2-1.fc18 (2013-9498)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

A directory traversal vulnerability was discovered in cgit. By
default, cgit is not affected. However, if cgit is configured to use a
readme file from a filesystem path instead of from the git repo itself
then files outside of the repository can be read.

Refer to the discussion on oss-security for further details :

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.
