Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes a security issue where an attacker could conduct
cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks and execute arbitrary FTP
commands. It also fixes some SSL shutdown issues seen with certain
clients.

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.
