The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was discovered that GnuTLS leaked timing information when
decrypting TLS/SSL protocol encrypted records when CBC-mode cipher
suites were used. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to
retrieve plain text from the encrypted packets by using a TLS/SSL
server as a padding oracle. (CVE-2013-1619)
For the update to take effect, all applications linked to the GnuTLS
library must be restarted, or the system rebooted.
