Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This is a security update for Bugzilla which fixes two issues :

- A user with editcomponents permissions could possibly inject system commands in product names and possibly other attributes.

- Methods from imported modules could possibly be executed using the WebService API.

The first issue is tracked as CVE-2014-8630. See https://www.bugzilla.org/security/4.0.15/ for all the details.

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.

Solution

Update the affected bugzilla package.
