The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way GnuTLS parsed session IDs from ServerHello
messages of the TLS/SSL handshake. A malicious server could use this
flaw to send an excessively long session ID value, which would trigger
a buffer overflow in a connecting TLS/SSL client application using
GnuTLS, causing the client application to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-3466)
For the update to take effect, all applications linked to the GnuTLS
library must be restarted.
