The remote service is susceptible to a buffer overflow attack.
The remote host seems to be using the Mozilla Network Security
Services (NSS) Library, a set of libraries designed to support the
development of security-enabled client/server applications.
There seems to be a flaw in the remote version of this library, in the
SSLv2 handling code, that may allow an attacker to cause a heap
overflow and therefore execute arbitrary commands on the remote host.
To exploit this flaw, an attacker needs to send a malformed SSLv2
'hello' message to the remote service.
See also :
Upgrade the remote service to use NSS 3.9.2 or newer.
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.2
