The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way libtirpc decoded RPC requests. A
specially- crafted RPC request could cause libtirpc to attempt to free
a buffer provided by an application using the library, even when the
buffer was not dynamically allocated. This could cause an application
using libtirpc, such as rpcbind, to crash. (CVE-2013-1950)
All running applications using libtirpc must be restarted for the
update to take effect.
