The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Steve Grubb discovered a flaw in the way coolkey created a temporary
directory. A local attacker could perform a symlink attack and cause
arbitrary files to be overwritten. (CVE-2007-4129)
In addition, the updated packages contain fixes for the following bugs
in the CAC Smart Card support :
- CAC Smart Cards can have from 1 to 3 certificates. The
coolkey driver, however, was not recognizing cards if
they had less than 3 certificates.
- logging into a CAC Smart Card token with a new
application would cause other, already authenticated,
applications to lose their login status unless the Smart
Card was then removed from the reader and re-inserted

Update the affected coolkey and / or coolkey-devel packages.
