Fedora 11 : sendmail-8.14.4-3.fc11 (2010-5399)

high Nessus Plugin ID 47387


New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This new version of sendmail fixes security bug - handling of bogus certificates with NULLs in CNs. Also many other bugs have been fixed, for complete list please see: http://www.sendmail.org/releases/8.14.4

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 sendmail package.
