Description

CVE-2012-4511: libsocialweb untrusted connection to flickr

The libsocialweb library is prone to a security vulnerability that allows attackers to perform man-in-the-middle attacks.

Remote attackers can exploit this issue to gain access to sensitive information or modify the integrity of user accounts. Other attacks are also possible.

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.
