Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Update to the 9.9.1-P3 security release. This update also fixes
following issues :

- bind now uses systemd-rpm macros for starting/restarting
of the named daemon. (BZ#850045)

- the NetworkManager dispatcher script contained wrong
path to systemcl utility. (BZ#837173)

- named-chroot.service systemd unit didn't work.
(BZ#825869)

- bind-devel package wasn't multilib clean. (BZ#478718)

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.
