Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes a potential buffer overflow in HTTP request
generation, which could be triggered by a malicious server generating
a large number of cookies or redirecting to a large path or hostname.

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.
