Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Several denial of service bugs were found in Wireshark's HTTP,
iSeries, DCP ETSI, SSL, MMS, DHCP and BOOTP protocol dissectors. It
was possible for Wireshark to crash or stop responding if it read a
malformed packet off the network. (CVE-2007-3389, CVE-2007-3390,
CVE-2007-3391, CVE-2007-3392, CVE-2007-3393)

Wireshark would interpret certain completion codes incorrectly when
dissecting IPMI traffic. Additionally, IPMI 2.0 packets would be
reported as malformed IPMI traffic.
