Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

This includes fixes for a number of security issues :

- Plaintext command injection vulnerability in FTPS

- Badly formed SSH messages cause DoS

- Limit recursion depth for untrusted regular
expressions (#673040)

The update also contains a large number of bug fixes over release
candidate 1, plus new support for SSL session caching using memcached.
