The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
The qspice-client package provides the client side of the SPICE
A race condition was found in the way the SPICE Mozilla Firefox
plug-in and the SPICE client communicated. A local attacker could use
this flaw to trick the plug-in and the SPICE client into communicating
over an attacker-controlled socket, possibly gaining access to
authentication details, or resulting in a man-in-the-middle attack on
the SPICE connection. (CVE-2010-2792)
NOTE: Because qspice-client was originally only x86_64, there are
several dependencies for i386 going out with this errata.
