The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
deltarpm prior to the current build ships with a bundled copy of zlib.
This version of zlib has a known vulnerability with CVE identifier:
CVE-2005-1849 This build of deltarpm patches the program to use the
system zlib (which was fixed when the vulnerability was first
discovered) instead of the bundled copy.
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.
