The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A privilege escalation flaw was found in the KDE Display Manager
(KDM). A local user with console access could trigger a race
condition, possibly resulting in the permissions of an arbitrary file
being set to world-writable, allowing privilege escalation.
The system should be rebooted for this update to take effect. After
the reboot, administrators should manually remove all leftover
user-owned dmctl-* directories in '/var/run/xdmctl/'.
