Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes various format string vulnerabilities
(CVE-2012-1152, CPAN RT#46507).

The Fedora 15 and Fedora 16 builds also include some bug-fixes from
upstream :

- Fix for broken deparse test

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.
