Fedora 7 : wesnoth-1.2.7-1.fc7 (2007-2496)

High Nessus Plugin ID 27774


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Security fix release: A malicious user could send a long chat message with multibyte characters, the server would truncate the message on a fixed length, without paying attention to the multibyte characters.
This led to invalid utf-8 on the client and an uncaught exception was thrown.

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.
