Fortinet FortiOS 5.x < 5.4.2 Flow-mode Detection Bypass

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.

Description :

The remote FortiGate device is running a version of FortiOS that is
5.x prior to 5.4.2. It is, therefore, affected by a security bypass
vulnerability when reloading the scanning engine after an update that
results in active network sessions no longer being monitored by
flow-mode detection. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this vulnerability to bypass security protection.
