Fedora Core 6 : libsoup-2.2.99-1.fc6 (2007-109)

High Nessus Plugin ID 24298


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


Update to the latest libsoup 2.2 release.

This release fixes a security flaw that causes the libsoup server to crash when it receives a malformed HTTP GET header.

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 libsoup, libsoup-debuginfo and / or libsoup-devel packages.
