-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2014-3874 2014-03-15 13:23:17 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Name : perltidy Product : Fedora 20 Version : 20130922 Release : 1.fc20 URL : Summary : Tool for indenting and reformatting Perl scripts Description : Perltidy is a Perl script which indents and reformats Perl scripts to make them easier to read. If you write Perl scripts, or spend much time reading them, you will probably find it useful. The formatting can be controlled with command line parameters. The default parameter settings approximately follow the suggestions in the Perl Style Guide. Perltidy can also output HTML of both POD and source code. Besides reformatting scripts, Perltidy can be a great help in tracking down errors with missing or extra braces, parentheses, and square brackets because it is very good at localizing errors. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: Update to 20130922, apply fix for CVE-2014-2277. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ChangeLog: * Wed Mar 12 2014 Ville Skyttä <> - 20130922-1 - Update to 20130922. - Fix for CVE-2014-2277 from Debian (#1074721) + related man page fix. - Fix bogus date in %changelog. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- References: [ 1 ] Bug #1074720 - CVE-2014-2277 perltidy: insecure temporary file creation -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.
