Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

An updated coreutils package is available fixing an issue in the ls(1)
utility, described at :

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2003-0853

Note that this vulnerability affects Internet-facing services which
execute ls(1) with user-supplied input, and although wu-ftpd is one
such service it is not supplied with Fedora Core 1.

has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
