Fedora 26 : httpd (2017-a52f252521) (Optionsbleed)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103438

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This is a release fixing a security fix applied upstream, known as 'optionsbleed' in popular parlance.

It is relevant for hosted and co-located instances of Fedora (and why wouldn't you?).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected httpd package.
