Fedora 17 : python-djblets-0.7.1-3.fc17 (2012-11668)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61583


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Previous version of python-djblets contained embedded / own copy of python-feedparser (BUILD/Djblets-0.6.22/djblets/feedview feedparser.py) code, which is vulnerable to numerous security flaws (CVE-2009-5065, CVE-2011-1156, CVE-2011-1157, and CVE-2011-1158 to mention some of them).

This package modifies Djblets to use the system copy of feedparser.

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-djblets package.
