The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This is a straightforward update from 2.5.1 to the newly-released 2.5.2. Release notes are here :

https://github.com/singularityware/singularity/releases/tag/2.5.2

The most important fix is a security issue in the overlay code. Please look for regressions in your Singularity runtime workflows.

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

Solution
