Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

New version 1.9.3 patchlevel 286 is released.

A potential security flaw was found on the previous ruby that using
crafted string might lead to unintentional file creation. This new rpm
will fix this issue.

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.
