The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
avahi-0.6.11-3.fc5 should fix CVE-2006-6870 - the consume_labels
function in avahi-core/dns.c in Avahi before 0.6.16 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted
compressed DNS response with a label that points to itself.
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.
