Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The 4.17.11 stable update contains a number of important fixes across the tree. Also of note, starting with this release, kernel-headers is built from a different srpm. The contents should be the same, but there were some benefits to breaking it from the kernel build.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
