The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was found that guestfish, which enables shell scripting and command
line access to libguestfs, insecurely created the temporary directory
used to store the network socket when started in server mode. A local
attacker could use this flaw to intercept and modify other user's
guestfish command, allowing them to perform arbitrary guestfish
actions with the privileges of a different user, or use this flaw to
obtain authentication credentials. (CVE-2013-4419)
