Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes security issue in ifcfg-rh plugin (CVE-2011-3364).
This update also fixes an applet and connection editor crash caused by
mis-packaging of some UI-related files, and corrects the path of
iscsiadm. This update further adds the ability to delete connections
from nmcli, correctly handles IPv6 link-local DNS servers when using
the dnsmasq local caching nameserver plugin, and fixes connection
timestamps for VPN connections.

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.
