Fedora 18 : system-config-date-1.10.3-1.fc18 / system-config-nfs-1.4.1-1.fc18 (2012-17797)

High Nessus Plugin ID 63102


The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.


This updates tightens policy so that only administrative users can make changes to the system (as it was before using pkexec instead of consolehelper).

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 system-config-date and / or system-config-nfs packages.
