Fedora 8 : viewvc-1.0.5-1.fc8 (2008-2159)
High Nessus Plugin ID 31326
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThese security issues have been fixed: - omit commits of all-forbidden files from query results - disallow direct URL navigation to hidden CVSROOT folder - strip forbidden paths from revision view - don't traverse log history thru forbidden locations - honor forbiddenness via diff view path parameters
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected viewvc package.
