Fedora 9 : PackageKit-0.2.5-1.fc9 / fedora-release-9-5.transition / gnome-packagekit-0.2.5-2.fc9 (2008-7748)

High Nessus Plugin ID 34150


The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.


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 It will be superseded by further fedora-release updates at a future date. The Fedora 9 update also includes new versions of PackageKit and gnome-packagekit to better handle importing of our new key. If you are using PackageKit it is recommended that you reboot after installing this update so that PackageKit can get a fresh look at the new repodata from the new repo definitions. See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Enabling_new_signing_key for more details. This update adds the ia64 secondary arch key as well as arranges GPG keys by arch and refers to them by arch in yum repo configs. This allows the secondary arch key to only be used on secondary arches and allows the fedora-release package to continue to be noarch. Also this update changes the commented out baseurl from download.fedora.redhat.com to download.fedoraproject.org.

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 PackageKit, fedora-release and / or gnome-packagekit packages.
