The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Security Fix(es) :
- A race condition was found in the way su handled the
management of child processes. A local authenticated
attacker could use this flaw to kill other processes
with root privileges under specific conditions.
Bug Fix(es) :
- The 'findmnt --target <path>' command prints all file
systems where the mount point directory is <path>.
Previously, when used in the chroot environment,
'findmnt --target <path>' incorrectly displayed all
mount points. The command has been fixed so that it now
checks the mount point path and returns information only
for the relevant mount point.
