Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

An integer overflow flaw, leading to arbitrary memory writes, was
found in libvpx. An attacker could create a specially crafted video
encoded using the VP8 codec that, when played by a victim with an
application using libvpx (such as Totem), would cause the application
to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-4203)

After installing the update, all applications using libvpx must be
restarted for the changes to take effect.
