SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update fixes a local privilege escalation bug in gitweb. For details:
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/103624 Additionally, gitk has been added as a requirement of git-gui (bug 476308) and perl(Net::SMTP::SSL) has been added as a requirement of git-send-email (bug 443615).
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 git package.
