MDKSA-2007:029: libsoup Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the libsoup package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:029 (libsoup).
The soup_headers_parse function in soup-headers.c for libsoup HTTP
library before 2.2.99 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) via malformed HTTP headers, probably involving missing
fields or values.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
