The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- Recreate tarball from proper sources; previous package was shipping an unknown code tarball.

- Add proper patching for CVE-2012-5617/CVE-2013-4161, the previous fix was creating a patch file and not patching the code.

- Use proper bus name in service file to fix service timeout.

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.
