Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A command injection flaw was found in the pcsd web UI. An attacker
able to trick a victim that was logged in to the pcsd web UI into
visiting a specially crafted URL could use this flaw to execute
arbitrary code with root privileges on the server hosting the web UI.

A race condition was found in the way the pcsd web UI backend
performed authorization of user requests. An attacker could use this
flaw to send a request that would be evaluated as originating from a
different user, potentially allowing the attacker to perform actions
with permissions of a more privileged user. (CVE-2015-5189)
