Fedora 8 : libetpan-0.54-1.fc8 (2008-5480)

High Nessus Plugin ID 33370


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Update to new upstream version 0.54 fixing a crash (NULL pointer dereference) in the mail message header parser. Note: There is no application in Fedora using libetpan library for which such crash could be considered a security issue. This can only be a security sensitive issue for some 3rd party, not packages applications.

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 libetpan package.
