Fedora 16 : python3-3.2.3-2.fc16 (2012-9135) (BEAST)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 59580


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fixes debug build systemtap support. Rebase of python3 from 3.2.1 to 3.2.3 bringing in security fixes, along with many other bug fixes. The compiled *.pyc and *.pyo files are now properly compiled so python3 doesn't try to recompile them over and over on runtime anymore.

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 python3 package.
