Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

It was discovered that the fix for the CVE-2013-1619 issue released via SLSA-2013:0588 introduced a regression in the way GnuTLS decrypted TLS/SSL encrypted records when CBC-mode cipher suites were used. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to crash a server or client application that uses GnuTLS. (CVE-2013-2116)

For the update to take effect, all applications linked to the GnuTLS library must be restarted.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
