Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'light'
package(s) announced via the FEDORA-2020-0fe677e44f advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Light is a program to control backlight controllers under GNU/Linux,
it is the successor of lightscript, which was a bash script
with the same purpose, and tries to maintain the same functionality.

Features

- Works excellent where other software have been proven unusable
or problematic, thanks to how it operates internally
and the fact that it does not rely on X.

- Can automatically figure out the best controller to use,
making full use of underlying hardware.

- Possibility to set a minimum brightness value, as some controllers
set the screen to be pitch black at a value of 0 (or higher).

Affected Software/OS:
'light' package(s) on Fedora 31.

Solution:
Please install the updated package(s).

CVSS Score:
5.0

CVSS Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N
