Fedora 9 : libetpan-0.54-1.fc9 (2008-5469)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Update to new upstream version 0.54 fixing a crash (NULL pointer
dereference) in the mail message header parser. Note: There is no
application in Fedora using libetpan library for which such crash
could be considered a security issue. This can only be a security
sensitive issue for some 3rd party, not packages applications.

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.
