Fedora Core 4 : openssh-4.2p1-fc4.1 (2005-860)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This security update fixes CVE-2005-2797 and CVE-2005-2798 and
resolves a problem with X forwarding binding only on IPv6 address on
certain circumstances. As it is an upgrade to a newer upstream release
there is a small change in interoperability with ssh clients older
than 3.5p1 if they are configured so they insist on compression. If
interoperability with such clients is required, the 'Compression'
option must be set to 'yes'.

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.
