A remote attacker could send specially crafted DTLS fragments to an
OpenSSL DTLS client or server to possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process using OpenSSL.
Furthermore, an attacker could force the use of weak keying material in
OpenSSL SSL/TLS clients and servers, inject data across sessions, or
cause a Denial of Service via various vectors.
There is no known workaround at this time.
