The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way NSS matched SSL certificates when the
certificates had a Common Name containing a wildcard and a partial IP
address. NSS incorrectly accepted connections to IP addresses that
fell within the SSL certificate's wildcard range as valid SSL
connections, possibly allowing an attacker to conduct a
man-in-the-middle attack. (CVE-2010-3170)
After installing the update, applications using NSS must be restarted
for the changes to take effect.
