The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
An out-of-bounds access flaw was found in Mesa. If an application
using Mesa exposed the Mesa API to untrusted inputs (Mozilla Firefox
does this), an attacker could cause the application to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the application. (CVE-2013-1872)
It was found that Mesa did not correctly validate messages from the X
server. A malicious X server could cause an application using Mesa to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the user running the application. (CVE-2013-1993)
All running applications linked against Mesa must be restarted for
this update to take effect.
