Synopsis :

The remote service supports the use of SSL Cipher Block Chaining
ciphers, which combine previous blocks with subsequent ones.

Description :

The remote host supports the use of SSL ciphers that operate in Cipher
Block Chaining (CBC) mode. These cipher suites offer additional
security over Electronic Codebook (ECB) mode, but have the potential to
leak information if used improperly.
