Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes a bug where a user could kill another user's SSL
connection by killing his own, because the SSL error queue wasn't
cleared properly.

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.
