Fedora Core 3 : devhelp-0.9.2-2.3.1 (2005-252)

High Nessus Plugin ID 19635


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


There were several security flaws found in the mozilla package, which devhelp depends on. Users of devhelp are advised to upgrade to this updated package which has been rebuilt against a later version of mozilla which is not vulnerable to these flaws.

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.


Update the affected devhelp, devhelp-debuginfo and / or devhelp-devel packages.
