Scientific Linux Security Update : libvorbis on SL3.x, SL4.x, SL5.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

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.
