The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

We would like to thank Tavis Ormandy for reporting this issue.

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


Update the affected systemtap package.
