Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes an issue (CVE-2008-3524) where a malicious user
could cause system files to be removed on startup. It also fixes a bug
when running on pre- Fedora-9 kernels, and cleans up some extraneous
error messages.

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.
