Synopsis :

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

Description :

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way udisks handled
files with long path names. A malicious, local user could use this
flaw to create a specially crafted directory structure that, when
processed by the udisks daemon, could lead to arbitrary code execution
with the privileges of the udisks daemon (root). (CVE-2014-0004)
