Fedora 15 : mutt-1.5.21-5.fc15 (2011-7739)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 55057


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This is an update that fixes a hostname verification of x.509 certificates and a segmentation fault during reading message headers.

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 mutt package.
