The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Security Fix(es) :
- A resource-consumption flaw was discovered in the DHCP
server. dhcpd did not restrict the number of open
connections to OMAPI and failover ports. A remote
attacker able to establish TCP connections to one of
these ports could use this flaw to cause dhcpd to exit
unexpectedly, stop responding requests, or exhaust
system sockets (denial of service). (CVE-2016-2774)
