Fedora 18 : perl-5.16.2-237.fc18 (2013-0659)
High Nessus Plugin ID 64368
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionFix Locale::Maketext vulnerability allowing to cross-call functions from message catalogs (CVE-2012-6329). App::Cpan(3pm) manual page was included in two subpackages by mistake. This release keeps the file in perl-CPAN package only.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected perl package.
