The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes CVE-2009-4496 where HTTP request logs were written without sanitizing non-printable characters.

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 boa package.
