Fedora 13 : perl-POE-Component-IRC-6.14-2.fc13.1 (2010-8911)

High Nessus Plugin ID 47517


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Plugs a security hole by simplifying privmsg handler: Removed the undocumented behavior of concatenating multiple arguments. It only accepts one argument now, and newlines/CR in a message (and everything following them) will be stripped as with other commands.

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 perl-POE-Component-IRC package.
