Fedora 9 : moin-1.6.4-2.fc9 (2009-6559)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 39457


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update includes a security fix for a hierarchical ACL vulnerability (hierarchical is not the default ACL mode), http://moinmo.in/SecurityFixes has the details of the fix.

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 moin package.
