Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

The 4.2.8 stable kernel update contains a number of important fixes across the tree.

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.

Solution

Update the affected kernel package.
