The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Security Fix(es) :
- It was found that util-linux's libblkid library did not
properly handle Extended Boot Record (EBR) partitions
when reading MS-DOS partition tables. An attacker with
physical USB access to a protected machine could insert
a storage device with a specially crafted partition
table that could, for example, trigger an infinite loop
in systemd-udevd, resulting in a denial of service on
that machine. (CVE-2016-5011)
