Low Nessus Plugin ID 76151


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This is an update that fixes bug which can lead to sendmail leaking file descriptors to processes it spawns.

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 sendmail package.
