Fedora 18 : cloud-init-0.6.3-0.5.bzr532.fc18 (2012-13972)

High Nessus Plugin ID 62295


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update changes the URL that cloud-init uses as a fallback for instance metadata when is not reachable from http://instance-data:8773/ to http://instance-data.:8773/ . It also fixes two systemd-related bugs.

Note that the former will require DNS server reconfiguration in setups with Eucalyptus clouds in System or Static modes.

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 cloud-init package.
