Synopsis :

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

Description :

Security Fix(es) :

- It was found that libndp did not properly validate and
check the origin of Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP)
messages. An attacker on a non-local network could use
this flaw to advertise a node as a router, allowing them
to perform man-in-the-middle attacks on a connecting
client, or disrupt the network connectivity of that
client. (CVE-2016-3698)
