Fedora 9 : filezilla- (2008-6865)

High Nessus Plugin ID 33777


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


According to the NEWS in this release: ---------------- ! Do not report success on SSL/TLS transfers if server did not perform orderly SSL/TLS shutdown. Previously, an attacker could cause truncated files with FileZilla thinking the transfer was successful. All versions prior to this were affected ---------------- None SA number has been mentioned yet.

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 filezilla package.
