Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Linux v3.3.8

Fixes for CVE-2012-2390 and CVE-2012-2372. Disabled 32bit NX emulation
which is suspected of being broken and aligns us more with upstream.

Final 3.3.x update before rebasing to the 3.4 kernel series.

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.
