The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Update to libHX 3.6 fixing a buffer overflow in HX_split(): *
0d pam_mount v2.5 (August 10 2010) ===============================
Changes: - mount.crypt: fix incorrect processing of binary files in
keyfile passthrough - call mount.crypt by means of mount -t crypt
(selinux), same for umount - reorder the default path to search in
/usr/local first, then /usr, / - config: add missing fd0ssh command to
restore volumes using ssh - ofl is now run as a separate process
(selinux policy simplification) libHX v3.6 (August 16 2010)
=========================== Fixed: - bitmap: set/clear/test had no

Enhancements: - format2: add the %(exec) function -

feature for %(exec) and %(shell) - format2: add the
%(snl) function - string: HX_strquote gained

format2: function-specific delimiters - format2: do

check for zero-argument function calls

- hashmap: do not needlessy change TID when no reshape was

recognizes the root directory - string: HX_basename now
returns the trailing component with slashes instead of
everything after the last slash (which may have been
