Fedora libnasl: OpenSSL incorrect checks for malformed signatures https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=479655
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-0636
2009-01-16 22:39:41
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : libnasl
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.2.11
Release     : 3.fc9
URL         : http://www.nessus.org
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.
