Fedora 18 : varnish-3.0.3-5.fc18 (2013-8381)

High Nessus Plugin ID 67346


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- Added macro _hardened_build to enforce compiling with PIE

- Moved ldconfig in postun script to a shell line

- Corrected some bogus dates in the changelog

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 varnish package.
