The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was discovered that Pango did not check for memory reallocation
failures in the hb_buffer_ensure() function. An attacker able to
trigger a reallocation failure by passing sufficiently large input to
an application using Pango could use this flaw to crash the
application or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges
of the user running the application. (CVE-2011-0064)
After installing this update, you must restart your system or restart
the X server for the update to take effect.
