The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
An uninitialized pointer use flaw was found in the SPICE Firefox
plug-in. If a user were tricked into visiting a malicious web page
with Firefox while the SPICE plug-in was enabled, it could cause
Firefox to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-1179)
It was found that the SPICE Firefox plug-in used a predictable name
for one of its log files. A local attacker could use this flaw to
conduct a symbolic link attack, allowing them to overwrite arbitrary
files accessible to the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-0012)
