The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
An information disclosure flaw was found in the way OpenSSL handled
TLS and DTLS Heartbeat Extension packets. A malicious TLS or DTLS
client or server could send a specially crafted TLS or DTLS Heartbeat
packet to disclose a limited portion of memory per request from a
connected client or server. Note that the disclosed portions of memory
could potentially include sensitive information such as private keys.
For the update to take effect, all services linked to the OpenSSL
library (such as httpd and other SSL-enabled services) must be
restarted or the system rebooted.
