Synopsis :

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

Description :

The OpenSSL Project reports :

An attacker using a carefully crafted handshake can force the use of
weak keying material in OpenSSL SSL/TLS clients and servers. This can
be exploited by a Man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack where the attacker
can decrypt and modify traffic from the attacked client and server.

By sending an invalid DTLS handshake to an OpenSSL DTLS client the
code can be made to recurse eventually crashing in a DoS attack.

A buffer overrun attack can be triggered by sending invalid DTLS
fragments to an OpenSSL DTLS client or server. This is potentially
exploitable to run arbitrary code on a vulnerable client or server.

OpenSSL TLS clients enabling anonymous ECDH ciphersuites are subject
to a denial of service attack. [CVE-2014-3470]
