Fedora 13 : uzbl-0-0.16.20100626gitafc0f873e.fc13 (2010-12260)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 48388


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fix a bug in the default configuration for the mouse bindings that can allow crafted links to execute arbitrary shell code. Please check your local configuration and replace '\@SELECTED_URI' with '$8' in any string that is executed as shell code (usually involves 'sh 'commands_here').

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 uzbl package.
