The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A heap-based buffer overflow was found in glibc's
__nss_hostname_digits_dots() function, which is used by the
gethostbyname() and gethostbyname2() glibc function calls. A remote
attacker able to make an application call either of these functions
could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of
the user running the application. (CVE-2015-0235)
