Fedora 14 : widelands-0-0.24.build16.fc14 (2011-6124)

High Nessus Plugin ID 53818


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- Rebase to new upstream release build16

- Besides various enhancements this also fixes an arbitrary file overwrite vulnerability, which could be exploited when connecting to malicious servers for internet play!

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 widelands package.
