Vulnerability in TLS Could Allow Information Disclosure (2655992) (uncredentialed check)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

It may be possible to obtain sensitive information from the remote
host with TLS-enabled services.

Description :

The remote TLS server does not verify block cipher padding when using
a cipher suite that employs a block cipher such as AES and DES. The
lack of padding checking can allow encrypted TLS traffic to be
decrypted. This vulnerability could allow for the decryption of HTTPS
traffic by an unauthorized third party.
