Fedora 9 : tqsllib-2.0-5.fc9 (2009-0543)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 35400


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


The TrustedQSL library incorrectly checked the result after calling the EVP_VerifyFinal function, allowing a malformed signature to be treated as a good signature rather than as an error. Package includes a patch to fix EVP_VerifyFinal result check.

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 tqsllib package.
