Synopsis :

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

Description :

What is new :

- Filelink: Upload your files to an online storage service
and send links to your friends, avoiding bounce back due
to large attachments. We have partnered with YouSendIt
to bring this feature, but additional partners will be
added in the near future.

- In partnership with Gandi and Hover, you can now sign
up for a personalized email address from within
Thunderbird. Along with your new email address,
Thunderbird will be automatically set up and ready to
send and receive messages. We are working with
additional suppliers to cover more areas of the world
and to provide more options in the future.

What is fixed :

- Various security fixes

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.
