Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Secunia reports :

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in OpenSSL, which can be
exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS.

The library does not limit the number of buffered DTLS records with a
future epoch. This can be exploited to exhaust all available memory
via specially crafted DTLS packets.

An error when processing DTLS messages can be exploited to exhaust all
available memory by sending a large number of out of sequence
handshake messages.
