The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was discovered that rhn-client-tools set insecure permissions on
the loginAuth.pkl file, used to store session credentials for
authenticating connections to servers. A local, unprivileged user
could use these credentials to download packages they wouldn't
normally have permission to download. They could also manipulate
package or action lists associated with the system's profile.
Note: This package pulled in several other packages as dependencies in
order to fix all bugs and security holes.
