The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a denial of service problem causing loss of browse services. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0558 to this issue.

In addition, this update fixes the cupsenable, cupsdisable and accept commands.
