Synopsis :

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

Description :

An integer overflow flaw which caused a heap-based buffer overflow was
discovered in the Vorbis comment tags reader. An attacker could create
a carefully-crafted Vorbis file that would cause an application using
GStreamer to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code if opened
by a victim. (CVE-2009-0586)

After installing this update, all applications using GStreamer (such
as Totem or Rhythmbox) must be restarted for the changes to take
effect.
