Description

Epiphany is a simple GNOME web browser based on the Mozilla rendering engine.

There were several security flaws found in the mozilla package, which epiphany depends on. Users of epiphany are advised to upgrade to this updated package which has been rebuilt against a version of mozilla not vulnerable to these flaws.

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.
