The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
libsoup is an HTTP client/library implementation for GNOME.
A directory traversal flaw was found in libsoup's SoupServer. If an
application used SoupServer to implement an HTTP service, a remote
attacker who is able to connect to that service could use this flaw to
access any local files accessible to that application via a specially
crafted request. (CVE-2011-2524)
All users of libsoup should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. All running
applications using libsoup's SoupServer must be restarted for the
update to take effect.
