Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

- Update to MySQL 5.5.20, for various fixes described at
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/news-5-5-20.html
as well as security fixes described at
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/cpujan
2012-366304.html

- Re-include the mysqld logrotate script, now that it's
not so bogus

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.
