Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

WebKitGTK+ 1.1.8 contains many bug-fixes and updates including spell-checking support, enhanced error reporting, lots of ATK enhancements, support for copying images to the clipboard, and a new printing API (since 1.1.5) that allows applications better control and monitoring of the printing process. Also, a potential buffer overflow in SVGList::insertItemBefore has been fixed (CVE-2009-0945); and the JIT compiler is now enabled by default for x86_64 systems. Please see the upstream changelog for the full list of fixes and enhancements:
http://svn.webkit.org/repository/webkit/trunk/WebKit/gtk/NEWS

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.

Solution

Update the affected webkitgtk package.
