The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A memory leak flaw was found in the way FreeRADIUS parses certain
authentication requests. A remote attacker could send a specially
crafted authentication request which could cause FreeRADIUS to leak a
small amount of memory. If enough of these requests are sent, the
FreeRADIUS daemon would consume a vast quantity of system memory
leading to a possible denial of service. (CVE-2007-2028)
