Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, and
a stack-based buffer overflow flaw were found in various ModPlug music
file format library (libmodplug) modules, embedded in GStreamer. An
attacker could create specially crafted music files that, when played
by a victim, would cause applications using GStreamer to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2006-4192, CVE-2011-1574)

All applications using GStreamer (such as Rhythmbox) must be restarted
for the changes to take effect.
