Description

The remote Fedora 33 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the FEDORA-2021-9107eeb95c advisory.

- encoding.c in GNU Screen through 4.8.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid write access and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted UTF-8 character sequence. (CVE-2021-26937)

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