Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was discovered that the QSharedMemory class implementation of the
Qt toolkit created shared memory segments with insecure permissions. A
local attacker could use this flaw to read or alter the contents of a
particular shared memory segment, possibly leading to their ability to
obtain sensitive information or influence the behavior of a process
that is using the shared memory segment. (CVE-2013-0254)

All running applications linked against Qt libraries must be restarted
for this update to take effect.
