Fedora 18 : v8-3.14.5.10-2.fc18 (2013-14205)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes an issue with Google V8, as used in Google Chrome
before 28.0.1500.95, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors that
leverage 'type confusion.'

Please note that this issue's impact on Node.js is somewhat lessened
since it does not typically execute JavaScript from foreign sources.

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.
