The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
An integer overflow flaw which caused a heap-based buffer overflow was
discovered in libsoup's Base64 encoding routine. An attacker could use
this flaw to crash, or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. This
arbitrary code would execute with the privileges of the application
using libsoup's Base64 routine to encode large, untrusted inputs.
All running applications using the affected library function (such as
Evolution configured to connect to the GroupWise back-end) must be
restarted for the update to take effect.
