Fedora Core 1 : openssl-0.9.7a-33.10 (2004-095)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 13684


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update includes OpenSSL packages to fix two security issues affecting OpenSSL 0.9.7a which allow denial of service attacks;
CVE-2004-0079 and CVE-2003-0851.

Also included are updates for the OpenSSL 0.9.6 and 0.9.6b compatibility libraries included in Fedora Core 1, fixing a separate issue which could also lead to a denial of service attack;

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.


Update the affected packages.
