Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Security Fix(es) :

- A heap buffer overflow flaw was found in QEMU's Cirrus
CLGD 54xx VGA emulator's VNC display driver support; the
issue could occur when a VNC client attempted to update
its display after a VGA operation is performed by a
guest. A privileged user/process inside a guest could
use this flaw to crash the QEMU process or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code on the host with privileges of
the QEMU process. (CVE-2016-9603)
