Fedora Core 3 : openssl096b-0.9.6b-21.42 (2005-1042)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20114
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionCVE-2004-0079, a remote crasher, was originally believed to only affect versions of OpenSSL after 0.9.6b verified with Codenomicon test suite (see pkt539.c). However we've had a customer report that this affects 0.9.6b via a different reproducer. This therefore affects the openssl096b compat packages as shipped with FC-3.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected openssl096b and / or openssl096b-debuginfo packages.
