The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Flaws were found in the way GnuTLS handles malicious client
connections. A malicious remote client could send a specially crafted
request to a service using GnuTLS that could cause the service to
crash. (CVE-2008-1948, CVE-2008-1949, CVE-2008-1950)
At this time we have not seen any code that is using this exploit. But
in Scientific Linux 5 there are some applications, that would be
directly vulnerable if/when there is an exploit. Because of the
potential threat we are labeling this important.
