The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
It was discovered that yum-rhn-plugin did not verify the SSL
certificate for all communication with a Red Hat Network server. An
attacker able to redirect the network communication between a victim
and an RHN server could use this flaw to provide malicious repository
metadata. This metadata could be used to block the victim from
receiving specific security updates. (CVE-2008-3270)
