The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
Three security issues have been fixed in this update: * A buffer
overflow when processing GIF files * A heap-based overflow in a CUPS
helper program, used for searching documentation * A buffer overflow
when processing HP-GL/2 files
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.
