SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionDuring a security audit, a stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the PAM authentication code in the OpenPegasus CIM management server. An unauthenticated remote user could trigger this flaw and potentially execute arbitrary code with root privileges.
Users of tog-pegasus should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the updated packages the tog-pegasus service should be restarted.
