SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSecurity update to fix CVE-2008-5183. Also changed in this update: * a bug that caused cups-polld to fail to resolve hostnames has been fixed
* a bug that could cause libcups to get stuck in a loop has been fixed
* the dnssd backend has been removed as it is not working correctly and can prevent printers being added
