Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes a security issue in the expo plugin which allows
local users with physical access to drag the screen saver aside and
access the locked desktop by using Expo mouse shortcuts.

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
