Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This version includes five patches backported from the recently
released 0.6.24 :

- A trivial security fix for CVE-2008-5081, rhbz 475964. -
A trivial fix for the threaded event loop, avahi bts
#251 - A trivial fix unbreaking the --force-bind logic
of avahi-autoipd, avahi bts #209 - A trivial fix to make
sure we never end up with an invalid IP address in
avahi-autoipd, avahi bts #231

- A trivial change to include the host name of the sender
when we receive bogus mDNS packets, rhbz #438013 All
changes are 'trivial', i.e. very simple in nature.

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.
