Scientific Linux Security Update : openafs on SL5.0 i386/x86_64

High Nessus Plugin ID 60353


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


In pthread-aware fileservers, the 'host_glock' pthread lock, accessed via the H_LOCK and H_UNLOCK macros, is used to provide safe access to host structures. This lock is required to be held when updating information pertaining to a host. The RPC handler for the GiveUpAllCallBacks RPC did not hold this lock while performing its work.


Update the affected packages.
