Fedora 18 : perl-Module-Metadata-1.000015-1.fc18 (2013-15157)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update clarifies the module's documentation about the code it
executes, i.e. it does 'eval' a module to determine its version
number. Previously it said that it did not execute unsafe code.

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.
