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

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was found that ABRT may have exposed unintended information to Red
Hat Bugzilla during crash reporting. A bug in the libreport library
caused changes made by a user in files included in a crash report to
be discarded. As a result, Bugzilla attachments may contain data that
was not intended to be made public, including host names, IP
addresses, or command line options. (CVE-2015-5302)

This flaw did not affect default installations of ABRT on Scientific
Linux as they do not post data to Red Hat Bugzilla.
