Fedora 23 : kernel-4.3.3-300.fc23 (2016-6ce812a1e0)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 89563

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Update to latest upstream stable release, 4.3.3. This is a major kernel version rebase and testers should take care to ensure things are working as expected.

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.
