Fedora 11 : viewvc-1.1.2-2.fc11 (2009-8507)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 40582


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


CHANGES in 1.1.2: - security fix: validate the 'view' parameter to avoid XSS attack - security fix: avoid printing illegal parameter names and values - add optional support for character encoding detection (issue #400) - fix username case handling in svnauthz module (issue #419) - fix cvsdbadmin/svnadmin rebuild error on missing repos (issue #420) - don't drop leading blank lines from colorized file contents (issue #422) - add file.ezt template logic for optionally hiding binary file contents Also includes: Install and populate mimetypes.conf. This should hopefully help when colouring syntax using pygments. Install and populate mimetypes.conf.

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 viewvc package.
