Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier
CVE-2013-2503 to the following vulnerability :

Privoxy before 3.0.21 does not properly handle Proxy-Authenticate and
Proxy-Authorization headers in the client-server data stream, which
makes it easier for remote HTTP servers to spoof the intended proxy
service via a 407 (aka Proxy Authentication Required) HTTP status
code.

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.
