The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was discovered that udev did not properly check the origin of
Netlink messages. A local attacker could use this flaw to gain root
privileges via a crafted Netlink message sent to udev, causing it to
create a world-writable block device file for an existing system block
device (for example, the root file system). (CVE-2009-1185)
After installing the update, the udevd daemon will be restarted
