The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was discovered that the apr_fnmatch() function used an
unconstrained recursion when processing patterns with the '*'
wildcard. An attacker could use this flaw to cause an application
using this function, which also accepted untrusted input as a pattern
for matching (such as an httpd server using the mod_autoindex module),
to exhaust all stack memory or use an excessive amount of CPU time
when performing matching. (CVE-2011-0419)
Applications using the apr library, such as httpd, must be restarted
for this update to take effect.

Update the affected apr, apr-devel and / or apr-docs packages.
