The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
This update includes the latest release of neon, version 0.28.6. This
fixes two security issues: * the 'billion laughs' attack against expat
could allow a Denial of Service attack by a malicious server.
(CVE-2009-2473) * an embedded NUL byte in a certificate subject name
could allow an undetected MITM attack against an SSL server if a
trusted CA issues such a cert.
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.
