The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Update package fixes following bugs :

- CVE-2014-3565 net-snmp: snmptrapd crash when handling an SNMP trap containing a ifMtu with a NULL type

- net-snmp-cert now works without net-snmp-devel package installed

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.
