Fedora 10 : perl-IO-Socket-SSL-1.26-1.fc10 (2009-7544)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 39855


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update to version 1.26 fixes an issue where only the prefix of the hostname was checked if there was no wildcard present, so for example www.example.org would match a certificate starting with www.exam.

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 perl-IO-Socket-SSL package.
