Fedora 18 : webkitgtk-1.10.2-1.fc18 / webkitgtk3-1.10.2-1.fc18 (2012-20125)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 63491


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


What's new in WebKitGTK+ 1.10.2? ================================

- WebCore has been split in a few more convenience libtool libraries, which should fix problems with linking in some architectures and with make's command line length limit.

- WebKit2 introspection files will also be built if introspection is enabled.

- Includes fixes for the following CVEs: CVE-2012-5112, CVE-2012-5133

- Web audio has been fixed to use a GstBuffer per-channel when looping, which sidesteps a race when dealing with the object references. It also got improvements to error handling and ease of testing when loading resources.

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 webkitgtk and / or webkitgtk3 packages.
