Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Security fix for denial of service (crash) via a contact description
with a large length, which triggers a buffer over-read. Successful
exploitation would require a man-in-the-middle attack or hacking the
Gadu-Gadu servers. No known exploits.

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.
