Synopsis :

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

Description :

A flaw was found in the way certain HPLIP tools discovered devices
using the SNMP protocol. If a user ran certain HPLIP tools that search
for supported devices using SNMP, and a malicious user is able to send
specially-crafted SNMP responses, it could cause those HPLIP tools to
crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running them. (CVE-2010-4267)
