Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Fedora 32 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the FEDORA-2021-9316ee2948 advisory.

- In goxmldsig (XML Digital Signatures implemented in pure Go) before version 1.1.0, with a carefully crafted XML file, an attacker can completely bypass signature validation and pass off an altered file as a signed one. A patch is available, all users of goxmldsig should upgrade to at least revision f6188febf0c29d7ffe26a0436212b19cb9615e64 or version 1.1.0 (CVE-2020-15216)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update the affected golang-github-russellhaering-goxmldsig package.
