Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

We missed a few upstream releases but there's not breaking changes as far as I know. Lot of bug fixes and minor changes.

----

Addresses CVE-2020-11054: After a certificate error was overridden by the user, qutebrowser displays the URL as yellow (colors.statusbar.url.warn.fg). However, when the affected website was subsequently loaded again, the URL was mistakenly displayed as green (colors.statusbar.url.success_https). While the user already has seen a certificate error prompt at this point (or set content.ssl_strict to false which is not recommended), this could still provide a false sense of security. This is now fixed.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected qutebrowser package.
