The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
The libnl3 packages contain a convenience library that simplifies

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
NetworkManager (1.8.0), network-manager-applet (1.8.0).
Security Fix(es) in the libnl3 component :
- An integer overflow leading to a heap-buffer overflow
was found in the libnl library. An attacker could use
this flaw to cause an application compiled with libnl to
crash or possibly execute arbitrary code in the context
of the user running such an application. (CVE-2017-0553)
