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)
