Fedora Core 3 2005-1042: openssl096b Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the openssl096b package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-1042 (openssl096b).
The OpenSSL toolkit provides support for secure communications between
machines. OpenSSL includes a certificate management tool and shared
libraries which provide various cryptographic algorithms and
CAN-2004-0079, a remote crasher, was originally believed to
only affect versions of OpenSSL after 0.9.6b verified with
Codenomicon test suite (see pkt539.c). However we've had a
customer report that this affects 0.9.6b via a different
reproducer. This therefore affects the openssl096b
compat packages as shipped with FC-3.
