Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Off-by-one error in the bzinflate function in Bzip2.xs in the
Compress-Raw- Bzip2 module before 2.018 for Perl allows
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application
hang or crash) via a crafted bzip2 compressed stream that triggers a
buffer overflow, a related issue to CVE-2009-1391.

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.
