Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This release fixes two security issues: The first being that Irssi
didn't check hostname on SSL connections and the other being a hard to
exploit remote crash bug. For a complete listing of the changes and
bugfixes since 0.8.14, please have a look at the
http://irssi.org/news/ChangeLog

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.
