The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
An input sanitization flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow,
was found in the way Pango displayed font files when using the
FreeType font engine back end. If a user loaded a malformed font file
with an application that uses Pango, it could cause the application to
crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application. (CVE-2011-0020)
After installing the updated packages, you must restart your system or
