Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Incorrect use of an OpenSSL cleanup function can lead to memory leaks
in applications. For example an SSL enabled web server such as Apache
that uses PHP, curl and OpenSSL leaks memory if a SIGHUP signal was
sent to Apache. The OpenSSL cleanup function was made more robust to
avoid memory leaks. (CVE-2009-4355)
