Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Fix low-severity CVE-2018-20217 (an authenticated user who can obtain a TGT using an older encryption type (DES, DES3, or RC4) can cause an assertion failure in the KDC by sending an S4U2Self request.)

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.
