Description

This is an update to the latest upstream release, which fixes a denial of service flaw found in the way AIS driver packet parser processed certain malformed packets.

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.
