Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57902


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Bugzilla is a Web-based bug-tracking system used by a large number of software projects. Two security issues have been discovered in Bugzilla and fixed in these releases.

These updates fix CVE-2012-0440 and CVE-2012-0448

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 bugzilla package.
