Fedora 13 : varnish-2.1.0-2.fc13 (2010-6719)

High Nessus Plugin ID 47446


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Upgrade to new upstream release 2.1.0. This upgrade is important because - The previous 2.0 series will be discontinued within the lifetime of F-13 - 2.1.0 contains a fix for CVE-2009-2936. It is not probably that upstream will backport this fix for the 2.0 series These changes should be important enough to include varnish-2.1.x in F-13, even after the freeze.

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 varnish package.
