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.
