Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

The new version 1.9.3 patchlevel 392 is released.

A bug was found in the previous ruby that unrestricted entity
expansion can lead to a DoS vulnerability in REXML. 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.
