Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update updates QtWebEngine to the 5.9.1 release, a security and bugfix release from the 5.9 branch. QtWebEngine 5.9.1 is part of the Qt 5.9.1 release, but only the QtWebEngine component is included in this update.

The update fixes the following security issues in QtWebEngine 5.9.0:
CVE-2017-5070, CVE-2017-5071, CVE-2017-5075, CVE-2017-5076, CVE-2017-5077, CVE-2017-5078, CVE-2017-5079, CVE-2017-5083, CVE-2017-5088, and CVE-2017-5089 (security fixes from Chromium up to version 59.0.3071.104).

Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution
