Synopsis :

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

Description :

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was
found in the way the gegl utility processed .ppm (Portable Pixel Map)
image files. An attacker could create a specially-crafted .ppm file
that, when opened in gegl, would cause gegl to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-4433)
