Scientific Linux Security Update : pacemaker on SL7.x x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Security Fix(es) :

- An authorization flaw was found in Pacemaker, where it
did not properly guard its IPC interface. An attacker
with an unprivileged account on a Pacemaker node could
use this flaw to, for example, force the Local Resource
Manager daemon to execute a script as root and thereby
gain root access on the machine. (CVE-2016-7035)

Bug Fix(es) :

- The version of Pacemaker in Scientific Linux 7.3
incorporated an increase in the version number of the
remote node protocol. Consequently, cluster nodes
running Pacemaker in Scientific Linux 7.3 and remote
nodes running earlier versions of Scientific Linux were
not able to communicate with each other unless special
precautions were taken. This update preserves the
rolling upgrade capability.
