Fedora 13 : viewvc-1.1.4-1.fc13 (2010-4239)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 47342


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Update to upstream version 1.1.4, fixing one XSS flaw and several bugs: * http://viewvc.tigris.org/source/browse/viewvc/trunk/CHANGES?revision=2 341 * security fix: escape user-provided query form input to avoid XSS attack * fix standalone.py failure (when per-root options aren't used) (issue #445) * fix annotate failure caused by ignored svn_config_dir (issue #447)

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.
