The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was discovered that certain sblim libraries had an RPATH (runtime
library search path) set in the ELF (Executable and Linking Format)
header. This RPATH pointed to a sub-directory of a world-writable,
temporary directory. A local user could create a file with the same
name as a library required by sblim (such as libc.so) and place it in
the directory defined in the RPATH. This file could then execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running an application
that used sblim (eg tog-pegasus). (CVE-2008-1951)
