Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update includes the latest stable release of the APR-util
library.

A memory leak in the apr_brigade_split_line() function allowed a
denial of service attack network services using this function, such as
the Apache HTTP Server. (CVE-2010-1623)

Bug fixes to the 'thread pool' interfaces and ODBC support are also
included.

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.
