The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was discovered that the Piranha Configuration Tool did not properly
restrict access to its web pages. A remote attacker able to connect to
the Piranha Configuration Tool web server port could use this flaw to
read or modify the LVS configuration without providing valid
administrative credentials. (CVE-2013-6492)
This update also fixes the following bug :
- When the lvsd service attempted to start, the
sem_timedwait() function received the interrupted
function call (EINTR) error and exited, causing the lvsd
service to fail to start. With this update, EINTR errors
are correctly ignored during the start-up of the lvsd
