Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This release adds an upstream patch to fix a directory traversal
vulnerability which would allow a remote attacker to create or
overwrite arbitrary files via a '..' (dot dot) and partial relative
pathname in a specially crafted torrent.

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.
