Fedora 13 : varnish-2.1.0-2.fc13 (2010-6719)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Upgrade to new upstream release 2.1.0. This upgrade is important
because - The previous 2.0 series will be discontinued within the
lifetime of F-13 - 2.1.0 contains a fix for CVE-2009-2936. It is not
probably that upstream will backport this fix for the 2.0 series These
changes should be important enough to include varnish-2.1.x in F-13,
even after the freeze.

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.
