Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update fixes a a DER decoding buffer overflow in the MinGW cross
compiled libtasn1 and gnutls packages. The mingw-gnutls build also
switches to using the system libtasn1 library instead of its bundled
copy.

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.
