Fedora 12 : openssl-1.0.0b-1.fc12 (2010-17826)

high Nessus Plugin ID 50674


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This is a minor update from upstream fixing one race condition theoretically exploitable from remote connections in some SSL servers (CVE-2010-3864). There are also a few additional bug fixes.

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 openssl package.
