Scientific Linux Security Update : sl-release on SL5.1 i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

The configuration file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources had still been set
to 5rolling instead of 51. 5rolling is the development area for
Scientific Linux 5. If a user was using a program that used
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources as a configuration file, they would be
getting development updates in addition to their regular security
updates. This configuration problem is only seen when Scientific Linux
5 is under development, which is about to happen.
