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


pidgin upgrade to 2.6.0 for the CVE-2009-2694, insufficient input validation in msn_slplink_process_msg(). 2.6.0 has Voice and Video support via farsight2 (Fedora 11+ only) and numerous other bug fixes.
farsight2, libnice and gupnp- igd are version upgrades to make voice and video actually work on Fedora 11.

Update the affected packages.
