This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

The conga packages provide a web-based administration tool for remote
cluster and storage management.

A privilege escalation flaw was found in luci, the Conga web-based
administration application. A remote attacker could possibly use this
flaw to obtain administrative access, allowing them to read, create,
or modify the content of the luci application. (CVE-2011-0720)

Users of Conga are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the
updated packages, luci must be restarted ('service luci restart') for
the update to take effect.
