VPR Score: 4.4

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update fixes a Denial of Service vulnerability in git-daemon. It also fixes minor issues when using git-cvsimport and the formatting of the git-daemon xinetd service description.

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.

Solution

Update the affected git package.
