New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

VPR Score: 6.7

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This fixes a security issue where a special crafted .git file could cause arbitrary code execution (CVE-2010-2542).

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.

Solution

Update the affected cgit package.
