Fedora 8 : dnssec-tools-1.3.2-1.fc8 (2008-1771)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31172


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


1.3.2 release which contains a small set of fixes over the 1.3 release. The biggest of these fixes is a patch to the libval DNSSEC validation library to ensure that the signature that validates it is a signature of the trust anchor itself.

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 dnssec-tools package.
