Fedora Core 3 : openssl096b-0.9.6b-21.42 (2005-1042)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

CVE-2004-0079, a remote crasher, was originally believed to only
affect versions of OpenSSL after 0.9.6b verified with Codenomicon test
suite (see pkt539.c). However we've had a customer report that this
affects 0.9.6b via a different reproducer. This therefore affects the
openssl096b compat packages as shipped with FC-3.

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.

packages.
