Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update includes a fix for a denial-of-service issue
(CVE-2007-3568) whereby an attacker who could get an imlib-using user
to view a specially crafted BMP image could cause the user's CPU to go
into an infinite loop.

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.
