The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was discovered that Git's git-imap-send command, a tool to send a
collection of patches from standard input (stdin) to an IMAP folder,
did not properly perform SSL X.509 v3 certificate validation on the
IMAP server's certificate, as it did not ensure that the server's
hostname matched the one provided in the CN field of the server's
certificate. A rogue server could use this flaw to conduct
man-in-the-middle attacks, possibly leading to the disclosure of
sensitive information. (CVE-2013-0308)
