Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Julian Walde and Alexander Klink reported a flaw in the hash function
used in the implementation of the Ruby-rack arrays (CVE-2011-5036).
Ruby-rack arrays are implemented using the hash table that maps keys
to values. This update fixes the bug.

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.
