Scientific Linux Security Update : pixman on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

An integer overflow, which led to a heap-based buffer overflow, was
found in the way pixman handled trapezoids. If a remote attacker could
trick an application using pixman into rendering a trapezoid shape
with specially crafted coordinates, it could cause the application to
crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application. (CVE-2013-6425)

All applications using pixman must be restarted for this update to
take effect.
