Fedora 20 : couchdb-1.6.0-9.fc20 / erlang-ibrowse-4.0.1-1.fc20 (2014-7657)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 76625


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


- erlang-ibrowse: ver. 4.0.1

- erlang-ibrowse: support only Fedora 18+, EL6+

- erlang-ibrowse: added patch for CouchDB 1.6.0

- CouchDB: ver. 1.6.0

- CouchDB: silence stdout/stderr to prevent redundant flooding of /var/log/messages CouchDB already logs these messages to /var/log/couchdb/couch.log Instead print the log filename to stdout, in case a user who ran it from the CLI is confused about where the messages went.

- CouchDB: -couch_ini accepts .ini or a .d/ directory.
For directories it reads any *.ini file. Fixes #1002277.

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 couchdb and / or erlang-ibrowse packages.
