high Nessus Plugin ID 176430



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


The remote Fedora 37 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the FEDORA-2023-1d0d71b6aa advisory.

- - Update the sequoia-openpgp crate to version 1.16.0. - Update the nettle crate to version 7.3.0. - Update the nettle-sys crate to version 2.2.0. - Update the buffered-reader crate to version 1.2.0. Version 1.16.0 of the sequoia-openpgp crate fixes some issues in parsing code, which could lead to attempted out- of-bounds accesses that result in crashes due to bounds checks which are included by default in Rust code.
This update contains rebuilds of all applications that are based on sequoia-openpgp to address this issue.
---- Update to version 1.5.0. This release improves compatibility with the version of librnp that's bundled in recent versions of thunderbird. (FEDORA-2023-1d0d71b6aa)

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