Fedora 18 : perl-Proc-ProcessTable-0.48-1.fc18 (2013-13635)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update, to the current upstream maintenance release, fixes
numerous bugs (as mentioned in the package changelog), including
unsafe usage of /tmp when caching is enabled (CVE-2011-4363), which
could allow an attacker to overwrite arbitrary files due to a race
condition.

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.
