Fedora 13 : perl-File-FcntlLock-0.12-1.fc13 / perl-Mail-Box-2.097-1.fc13 (2011-2531)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 52661


The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.


Update perl-Mail-Box to 2.097. No longer require spamassassin. 2.097 now randomizes boundary string to avoid (undemonstrated) security risks with boundary guessing.

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-File-FcntlLock and / or perl-Mail-Box packages.
