Fedora 11 : kdelibs3-3.5.10-13.fc11.1 (2009-9391)

High Nessus Plugin ID 40895


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes CVE-2009-2702, a security issue where SSL certificates containing embedded NUL characters would falsely pass validation when they're actually invalid, for the KDE 3 compatibility version of kdelibs.

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 kdelibs3 package.
