Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Security fix release: A malicious user could send a long chat message
with multibyte characters, the server would truncate the message on a
fixed length, without paying attention to the multibyte characters.
This led to invalid utf-8 on the client and an uncaught exception was
thrown.

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.
