The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fixes a security vulnerability where a CobblerWeb user (if so configured) can import a Python module via a web-edited Cheetah template and run commands as root.

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 cobbler package.
