Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Pango is a library used for the layout and rendering of
internationalized text.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in HarfBuzz, an OpenType text shaping
engine used in Pango. If a user loaded a specially-crafted font file
with an application that uses Pango, it could cause the application to
crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application. (CVE-2011-3193)

Users of evolution28-pango are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
After installing this update, you must restart your system or restart
the X server for the update to take effect.
