According to PCI Requirement 11.2.2 and 11.2.3, vulnerabilities rated 4.0 or higher by CVSS should result in Failure of PCI compliance. Here is the ASV guide explaining PCI Pass/Fail criteria on page 23. Based on this facts, why would the below image which outlines the "SSL/TLS use of weak RC4 cipher" vulnerability with PCI Severity of Medium and CVSS Base Score of 4.3, considered a Pass? The below result is from a scan that occurred two weeks ago from this posting date.

 

Please advise.
