High Nessus Plugin ID 72544


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a denial of service vulnerability which could be triggered by specially crafted input if the buffer used by the MultipartSteeam was not big enough.

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 apache-commons-fileupload package.
