Fedora 14 : exim-4.76-1.fc14 (2011-7047)

High Nessus Plugin ID 54296


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes two remote execution exploits in DKIM processing code (CVE-2011-1407, CVE-2011-1764).

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 exim package.
