Fedora 15 : python-paste-script-1.7.5-4.fc15 (2012-2413)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 58622


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a security flaw with Paster that prevents it from properly dropping privileges when run as root.

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 python-paste-script package.
