The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way libvirtd handled connection cleanup (when
a connection was being closed) under certain error conditions. A
remote attacker able to establish a read-only connection to libvirtd
could use this flaw to crash libvirtd or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the root user. (CVE-2013-0170)
After installing the updated packages, libvirtd will be restarted
