Fedora 17 : perl-YAML-LibYAML-0.38-2.fc17 (2012-4871)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 58702


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes various format string vulnerabilities (CVE-2012-1152, CPAN RT#46507).

The Fedora 15 and Fedora 16 builds also include some bug-fixes from upstream :

- Fix for broken deparse test

- Fix LoadFile on empty file failure

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-YAML-LibYAML package.
