The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way the Avahi daemon (avahi-daemon) processed
Multicast DNS (mDNS) packets with an empty payload. An attacker on the
local network could use this flaw to cause avahi-daemon on a target
system to enter an infinite loop via an empty mDNS UDP packet.
After installing the update, avahi-daemon will be restarted
