Synopsis :

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

Description :

GnuTLS reports :

By using a NUL byte in CN/SAN fields, it was possible to fool GnuTLS
into 1) not printing the entire CN/SAN field value when printing a
certificate and 2) cause incorrect positive matches when matching a
hostname against a certificate.
