Fedora Core 6 2007-100: ed Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the ed package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2007-100 (ed).
Ed is a line-oriented text editor, used to create, display, and modify
text files (both interactively and via shell scripts). For most
purposes, ed has been replaced in normal usage by full-screen editors
(emacs and vi, for example).
Ed was the original UNIX editor, and may be used by some programs. In
general, however, you probably don't need to install it and you probably
won't use it.
