Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

If fetchmail is running in daemon mode, it must be restarted for this
update to take effect (use the 'fetchmail --quit' command to stop the
fetchmail process).

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.
