Medium Nessus Plugin ID 24715


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


This update fixes two security vulnerabilities with SSL 2 (CVE-2007-0008, CVE-2007-0009).

All users of NSS, which includes users of Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and other mozilla.org products, are recommended to update to this package.

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 packages.
