    A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way OpenSSL parsed Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) messages. An attacker could use this flaw to crash an application that uses OpenSSL to decrypt or verify S/MIME messages.

    This update also fixes a regression caused by the fix for CVE-2011-4619, released via RHSA-2012:0060 and RHSA-2012:0059, which caused Server Gated Cryptography (SGC) handshakes to fail.

    Update your systems ASAP, via yum update. Redhat ERRATA

    Is that a production box? You should not have any development RPM's in production.
