Fedora 12 : ssmtp-2.61-15.fc12 (2010-11811)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 48325


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Corrected patch for the 'standardise() -- Buffer overflow' bug.

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 ssmtp package.
