Fedora 20 : Pound-2.6-8.fc20 (2014-13777)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 79192
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Backport various security fixes. Note they usually are extra options that need to be enabled manually so that we won't break functionality :

- CVE-2011-3389: Make it possible to deny use of 'BEAST' vulnerable ciphers

- CVE-2012-4929: Disable compression to be safe from 'CRIME'

- CVE-2005-2090: Chunked encofing response splitting (no awkward name here)

- CVE-2014-3566: Allow disabling SSLv3 (and others), to be safe from 'POODLE'

- A redirect XSS fix

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 Pound package.
