The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way libxc, the Xen control library, handled
excessively large kernel and ramdisk images when starting new guests.
A privileged guest user in a para-virtualized guest (a DomU) could
create a crafted kernel or ramdisk image that, when attempting to use
it during guest start, could result in an out-of-memory condition in
the privileged domain (the Dom0). (CVE-2012-4544)
After installing the updated packages, the xend service must be
restarted for this update to take effect.
