Fedora 17 : axis-1.4-19.fc17 (2013-1194)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes a security vulnerability that caused axis not to
verify that the server hostname matches a domain name in the subject's
Common Name (CN) or subjectAltName field of the X.509 certificate,
which allowed man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via
andaarbitrary valid certificate (CVE-2012-5784).

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.
