Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was found that RealtimeKit communicated with PolicyKit for
authorization using a D-Bus API that is vulnerable to a race
condition. This could have led to intended PolicyKit authorizations
being bypassed. This update modifies RealtimeKit to communicate with
PolicyKit via a different API that is not vulnerable to the race
condition. (CVE-2013-4326)
