Fedora libnasl: OpenSSL incorrect checks for malformed signatures
Fedora Update Notification
2009-01-16 22:38:38

Name        : libnasl
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 2.2.11
Release     : 3.fc10
URL         :
Summary     : Nessus Attack Scripting Language
Description :
NASL is a scripting language designed for the Nessus security scanner.
Its aim is to allow anyone to write a test for a given security hole
in a few minutes, to allow people to share their tests without having
to worry about their operating system, and to guarantee everyone that
a NASL script can not do anything nasty except performing a given
security test against a given target.

Thus, NASL allows you to easily forge IP packets, or to send regular
packets. It provides you some convenient functions that will make the
test of web and FTP server more easy to write. NASL garantees you that
a NASL script:
- will not send any packet to a host other than the target host,
- will not execute any commands on your local system.



  [ 1 ] Bug #479655 - libnasl: OpenSSL incorrect checks for malformed signatures

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update libnasl' at the command line.
For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum",
available at

All packages are signed with the Fedora Project GPG key.  More details on the
GPG keys used by the Fedora Project can be found at
