The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way the Python SSL module handled X.509
certificate fields that contain a NULL byte. An attacker could
potentially exploit this flaw to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks to
spoof SSL servers. Note that to exploit this issue, an attacker would
need to obtain a carefully crafted certificate signed by an authority
that the client trusts. (CVE-2013-4238)
