Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Fixes some bugs that were caused by upstream stable kernel updates,
including a longstanding bug causing oopses when removing USB storage
devices and optical media.

Fixes stalls on machines with the latest Intel graphics hardware
(Sandybridge.)

Also fixes some important security issues.

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.
