Scientific Linux Security Update : vino on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 70578
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA denial of service flaw was found in the way Vino handled certain authenticated requests from clients that were in the deferred state. A remote attacker could use this flaw to make the vino-server process enter an infinite loop when processing those incoming requests.
The GNOME session must be restarted (log out, then log back in) for this update to take effect.
SolutionUpdate the affected vino and / or vino-debuginfo packages.
