Description

In the previous rpm, catfish used a wrapper launching script using some bad logic for searching paths, which might lead to arbitrary code execution exploit by malicious local user. This vulnerability is now assigned as CVE-2014-2093 through CVE-2014-2096.

This new rpm should fix this issue.

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.
