The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A directory traversal flaw was found in the way KGet, a download
manager, handled the 'file' element in Metalink files. An attacker
could use this flaw to create a specially crafted Metalink file that,
when opened, would cause KGet to overwrite arbitrary files accessible
to the user running KGet. (CVE-2011-1586)
The desktop must be restarted (log out, then log back in) for this
update to take effect.
