Fedora 16 : perl-Pod-Plainer-1.03-1.fc16 (2012-5155)

High Nessus Plugin ID 58781


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


The perl(Pod::Plainer) is requred by LSB 4.1, but was obsoleted by the Perl upstream. So new software MUST NOT uses this module.

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-Pod-Plainer package.
