Synopsis :

disabled * High CPU usage when DNS lookups fail in the UDP tracker
code * Several security issues in the webinterface plugin

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable

without introducing additional issues.
