Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This version adds to sSMTP the ability to validate the TLS servers it
connects to.

It also enables use of separate files for client key and certificate
files.

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.
