Scientific Linux Security Update : lzo on SL6.x i386/srpm/x86_64

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


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the lzo library
decompressed certain archives compressed with the LZO algorithm. An
attacker could create a specially crafted LZO-compressed input that,
when decompressed by an application using the lzo library, would cause
that application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2014-4607)

For the update to take effect, all services linked to the lzo library
must be restarted or the system rebooted.
