Fedora 16 : python-mwlib-0.13.5-1.fc16 (2012-2994)
High Nessus Plugin ID 58364
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpdate to version 0.13.5, which solves the following issues :
It was reported that mwlib suffered from a flaw that could allow a remote attacker to perform a denial of service attack on a mwlib installation by forcing it to parse a specially crafted #iferror magic function. This issue has been resolved in version 0.13.5.
syntaxhighlight nodes are supported properly in version 0.13.5.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected python-mwlib package.
