The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Will Drewry of the Google Security Team reported several flaws in the
way libvorbis processed audio data. An attacker could create a
carefully crafted OGG audio file in such a way that it could cause an
application linked with libvorbis to crash, or execute arbitrary code
when it was opened. (CVE-2008-1419, CVE-2008-1420, CVE-2008-1423)
Moreover, additional OGG file sanity-checks have been added to prevent
possible exploitation of similar issues in the future.

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