This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
libtasn1 (4.10).

Security Fix(es) :

- A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way
the libtasn1 library decoded certain DER-encoded inputs.
A specially crafted DER- encoded input could cause an
application using libtasn1 to perform an invalid read,
causing the application to crash. (CVE-2015-3622)

- A stack-based buffer overflow was found in the way
libtasn1 decoded certain DER encoded data. An attacker
could use this flaw to crash an application using the
libtasn1 library. (CVE-2015-2806)
