The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way libtiff
processed certain TIFF Internet Fax image files, compressed with the
CCITT Group 4 compression algorithm. An attacker could use this flaw
to create a specially crafted TIFF file that, when opened, would cause
an application linked against libtiff to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-0192)
All running applications linked against libtiff must be restarted for
this update to take effect.
