SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThis update fixes a a DER decoding buffer overflow in the MinGW cross compiled libtasn1 and gnutls packages. The mingw-gnutls build also switches to using the system libtasn1 library instead of its bundled copy.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected mingw-gnutls, mingw-libtasn1 and / or mingw-p11-kit packages.
