SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis release fixes CVE-2018-12015 vulnerability (a directory traversal). It also fixes creating a file with a trailing white space on the file name. It also allows to archive absolute path names and it speeds up extracting large archives.
