Fedora 19 : perl-Module-Metadata-1.000015-1.fc19 (2013-15196)

High Nessus Plugin ID 69533


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update clarifies the module's documentation about the code it executes, i.e. it does 'eval' a module to determine its version number. Previously it said that it did not execute unsafe code.

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 perl-Module-Metadata package.
