Fedora 15 : kernel-2.6.43.8-1.fc15 (2012-8931)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Update to Linux 2.6.43.8 (3.3.8).

Disabled 32bit NX emulation. Suspected of being broken and it deviates
from upstream.

Unless there are further security issues, this will likely be the last
F15 kernel update before End-of-Life. The 3.3.7 stable kernel contains
a number of important bug 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.
