The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Security Fix(es) :
- It was found that wget used a file name provided by the
server for the downloaded file when following an HTTP
redirect to a FTP server resource. This could cause wget
to create a file with a different name than expected,
possibly allowing the server to execute arbitrary code
on the client. (CVE-2016-4971)

Update the affected wget and / or wget-debuginfo packages.
