Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update addresses CVE-2009-3555 (SSL/TLS renegotiation
vulnerability), mitigating the problem by refusing all
client-initiated SSL/TLS session renegotiations. This update to the
latest maintenance release also fixes a number of bugs recorded in the
proftpd bug tracker: - SSL/TLS renegotiation vulnerability
(CVE-2009-3555, bug 3324) - Failed database transaction can cause
mod_quotatab to loop (bug 3228) - Segfault in mod_wrap (bug 3332) -
<Directory> sections can have <Limit> problems (bug 3337) - mod_wrap2
segfaults when a valid user retries the USER command (bug 3341) -
mod_auth_file handles 'getgroups' request incorrectly (bug 3347) -
Segfault caused by scrubbing zero- length portion of memory (bug 3350)
Finally, the behaviour of the MLSD FTP command (used in many modern
FTP clients to list directories) is fixed for the case when the FTP
server's configuration disallows its usage (using a <Limit> clause) in
some but not all places (#544002).

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.
