This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A denial of service flaw was found in the way the Quagga bgpd daemon
processed certain route metrics information. A BGP message with a
specially crafted path limit attribute would cause the bgpd daemon to
reset its session with the peer through which this message was
received. (CVE-2010-1675)

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Quagga bgpd
daemon processed malformed route extended communities attributes. A
configured BGP peer could crash bgpd on a target system via a
specially crafted BGP message. (CVE-2010-1674)

After installing the updated packages, the bgpd daemon must be
restarted for the update to take effect.
