Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

It was found that the MySQL client library permitted but did not
require a client to use SSL/TLS when establishing a secure connection
to a MySQL server using the '--ssl' option. A man-in-the-middle
attacker could use this flaw to strip the SSL/TLS protection from a
connection between a client and a server. (CVE-2015-3152)
