High Nessus Plugin ID 43606


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- security fix: add root listing support of per-root authz config * security fix: query.py requires 'forbidden' authorizer (or none) in config * fix URL- ification of truncated log messages (issue #3) * fix regexp input validation (issue #426, #427, #440) * add support for configurable tab-to-spaces conversion * fix not-a-sequence error in diff view * allow viewvc-install to work when templates-contrib is absent * minor template improvements/corrections

- expose revision metadata in diff view (issue #431) * markup file/directory item property URLs and email addresses (issue #434) * make ViewVC cross copies in Subversion history by default * fix bug that caused standalone.py failure under Python 1.5.2 (issue #442) * fix support for per-vhost overrides of authorizer parameters (issue #411) * fix root name identification in query.py interface

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.
