Fedora 12 : irssi-0.8.15-1.fc12 (2010-6629)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 47443
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis release fixes two security issues: The first being that Irssi didn't check hostname on SSL connections and the other being a hard to exploit remote crash bug. For a complete listing of the changes and bugfixes since 0.8.14, please have a look at the http://irssi.org/news/ChangeLog
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected irssi package.
