Fedora 8 : fedora-release-8-6.transition (2008-7747)

High Nessus Plugin ID 34149


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This fedora-release update introduces a new set of Fedora Updates and Updates Testing repo definitions. These new definitions point to new URLS for our update content signed with a new key. This update also provides Fedora 8 and 9's new package signing keys. This update is a transitional update to direct users at the rest of the updates in the new locations. It will be superseded by further fedora-release updates at a future date. See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Enabling_new_signing_key for more details.

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 fedora-release package.
