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 image files that were compressed with the JPEG
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-2009-5022)
All running applications linked against libtiff must be restarted for
this update to take effect.
