Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Filter out untrusted python modules search path to remove the
possibility to run arbitrary code on the user's system if there is a
python file in dia's working directory named the same as one that
dia's python scripts try to import.

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.
