Fedora 12 : openconnect-2.25-1.fc12 (2010-12253)

High Nessus Plugin ID 48306


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update enables validation of the VPN server's SSL certificate by default, to defend against a potential man-in-the-middle attack.

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 openconnect package.
