Fedora 16 : bugzilla-4.0.7-1.fc16 (2012-11324)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61496


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


These versions of Bugzilla fix an information leak that allows an unprivileged user to read the description of a private attachment.

See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=777586 for all the details.

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 bugzilla package.
