Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This is an update that adds explicit check to the imginfo format. It
may prevent crash/exploit of user space applications which pass user
supplied format to the library call without checking. This is an new
version of rrdtool that fixes several bugs. The main new feature of
this release is that large graph expressions are processed magnitudes
faster. For more details see the original announcement
http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/forum.en.html#nabble-f937719

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.
