Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Security Fix(es) :

- It was found that evince did not properly sanitize the
command line which is run to untar Comic Book Tar (CBT)
files, thereby allowing command injection. A specially
crafted CBT file, when opened by evince or evince-
thumbnailer, could execute arbitrary commands in the
context of the evince program. (CVE-2017-1000083)
