Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update addresses a denial of service security issue
(CVE-2010-0302) as well as fixing several other small problems: *
classes.conf is now updated when a class member is deleted. * the
usermode dependency has been removed. * the udev rules are now
installed in the correct location. * cups-config now has no multilib
conflict. * the ipp backend now clears the printer status on
completion. * cupsGetNamedDest() is no longer confused by old
configuration files. * the scheduler no longer treats SIGPIPE as a
filter error. * the gcrypt threading patch has been reverted. * the
package no longer owns filesystem-owned directories.

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.
