Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This fedora-release update introduces a new set of Fedora Updates and
Updates Testing repo definitions. These new definitions point to new
URLS for our update content signed with a new key. This update also
provides Fedora 8 and 9's new package signing keys. This update is a
transitional update to direct users at the rest of the updates in the
new locations. It will be superseded by further fedora-release updates
at a future date. See
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Enabling_new_signing_key for more
details.

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.
