Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

- fixed possible privilege escalation flaw via use of
python pickle (CVE-2011-2520), replaced pickle by json
(rhbz#717985) and (rhbz#722991)

- stop D-BUS firewall mechanism on update, because D-BUS
interface will not be compatible to old pickle version

- system-config-printer needs to get updated, too

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.
