Fedora 10 : moin-1.6.4-3.fc10 (2009-7761)

High Nessus Plugin ID 39862


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update removes the filemanager and _samples directories from the embedded FCKeditor, they contain code with know security vulnerabilities, even though that code couldn't be invoked when Moin was used with the default settings. Moin was probably not affected, but installing this update is still recommended as a security measure.
CVE-2009-2265 is the related CVE identifier.

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.
