The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A denial of service flaw was discovered in the system for sending
messages between applications. A local user could send a message with
an excessive number of nested variants to the system-wide message bus,
causing the message bus (and, consequently, any process using libdbus
to receive messages) to abort. (CVE-2010-4352)
For the update to take effect, all running instances of dbus-daemon
and all running applications using the libdbus library must be
restarted, or the system rebooted.
