Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Fixes CVEs :

CVE-2012-2123 CVE-2012-2121 CVE-2012-2119

Also fixes a boot regression on some Dell machines Linux 3.3.2

There was a regression at the DVB core, affecting applications that
require the DVB status before having a lock. In order to allow a
broader test (including my environment).

All new patches from the upstream media tree up to Apr, 10 got
backported plus the fix patches, in order to have, among other things,
the az6007 and af9035 drivers backported.

Various bugfixes.

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.
