The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Stack-based buffer overflow in the push_subg function in parser.y
(lib/graph/parser.c) in Graphviz 2.20.2, and possibly earlier
versions, allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (memory corruption) or execute arbitrary code via a DOT file
with a large number of Agraph_t elements. (CVE-2008-4555)
Note: graphviz-ocaml is no longer supported in the SL version of
graphiviz. This is because ocaml was never included. If you do have
graphviz-ocaml installed, you will have to remove it before doing this
Note: This update is already in SL 5.4
