The remote host may be affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.
According to its banner, the remote web server is running a version
of OpenSSL earlier than 0.9.8w. As such, the OpenSSL library itself
is reportedly affected by a memory corruption vulnerability via an
integer truncation error in the function 'asn1_d2i_read_bio' when
reading ASN.1 DER format data.
Applications using the 'BIO' or 'FILE' based functions (i.e.,
'd2i_*_bio' or 'd2i_*_fp' functions) are affected by this issue.
Also affected are 'S/MIME' or 'CMS' applications using
'SMIME_read_PKCS7' or 'SMIME_read_CMS' parsers. The OpenSSL command
line utility is affected if used to handle untrusted DER formatted
Note that the SSL/TLS code of OpenSSL is not affected. Also not
affected are applications using memory-based ASN.1 functions (e.g.,
'd2i_X509', 'd2i_PKCS12', etc.) nor are applications using only PEM
Note also that the original fix for CVE-2012-2110 in 0.9.8v was
incomplete because the functions 'BUF_MEM_grow' and
'BUF_MEM_grow_clean', in file 'openssl/crypto/buffer/buffer.c', did
not properly account for negative values of the argument 'len'.
