The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200710-30
(OpenSSL: Remote execution of arbitrary code)
Andy Polyakov reported a vulnerability in the OpenSSL toolkit, that is
caused due to an unspecified off-by-one error within the DTLS
A remote attacker could exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code or
cause a Denial of Service. Only clients and servers explicitly using
DTLS are affected, systems using SSL and TLS are not.
There is no known workaround at this time.
