Fedora 18 : telepathy-idle-0.1.15-1.fc18 (2013-6534)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66297


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This release validate TLS certificates properly, preventing man-in-the-middle attacks.

This will be a regression for users of IRC-over-SSL servers/proxies that do not have a certificate trusted by system-wide CA configuration; they will no longer be able to connect. If someone implements fd.o #57130, that will provide the ability for those users to approve additional certificates.

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 telepathy-idle package.
