The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A memory corruption flaw was found in the way the openssl_x509_parse()
function of the PHP openssl extension parsed X.509 certificates. A
remote attacker could use this flaw to provide a malicious self-signed
certificate or a certificate signed by a trusted authority to a PHP
application using the aforementioned function, causing the application
to crash or, possibly, allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the PHP interpreter.
After installing the updated packages, the httpd daemon must be
restarted for the update to take effect.
