Fedora 10 : perl-IO-Socket-SSL-1.26-1.fc10 (2009-7544)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update to version 1.26 fixes an issue where only the prefix of
the hostname was checked if there was no wildcard present, so for
example www.example.org would match a certificate starting with
www.exam.

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.
