Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update contains a back-ported fix for a security issue that
allows malicious PostScript input files to cause a stack-based buffer
overflow (CVE-2008-0411). This update also restores JPEG2000 support.

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
