Fedora 23 : perl-Module-Load-Conditional (2016-0aa251bc9b)

High Nessus Plugin ID 92797


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update adds an option 'FORCE_SAFE_INC', which, if set (it isn't by default), removes the current directory from the module load path so as to avoid loading code from a potentially unsafe place (CVE-2016-1238).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected perl-Module-Load-Conditional package.
