Fedora 19 : glibc-2.17-14.fc19 (2013-15316)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

systemd is now required during build so that installing or updating
nscd does not result in any warnings. rtkaio bits are now tested
correctly.

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.
