Fedora 17 : openconnect-4.08-1.fc17 (2013-2472)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 64870


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a potential buffer overflow in HTTP request generation, which could be triggered by a malicious server generating a large number of cookies or redirecting to a large path or hostname.

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 openconnect package.
