Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A flaw was found in the way the luci service was initialized. If a
system administrator started the luci service from a directory that
was writable to by a local user, that user could use this flaw to
execute arbitrary code as the root or luci user. (CVE-2013-4482)

A flaw was found in the way luci generated its configuration file. The
file was created as world readable for a short period of time,
allowing a local user to gain access to the authentication secrets
stored in the configuration file. (CVE-2013-4481)

After installing this update, the luci service will be restarted
