The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
During a security audit, a stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found
in the PAM authentication code in the OpenPegasus CIM management
server. An unauthenticated remote user could trigger this flaw and
potentially execute arbitrary code with root privileges.
Users of tog-pegasus should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the
updated packages the tog-pegasus service should be restarted.
