The remote Windows host is affected by a security feature bypass
vulnerability, known as FREAK (Factoring attack on RSA-EXPORT Keys),
due to the support of weak EXPORT_RSA cipher suites with keys less
than or equal to 512 bits. A man-in-the-middle attacker may be able to
downgrade the SSL/TLS connection to use EXPORT_RSA cipher suites which
can be factored in a short amount of time, allowing the attacker to
intercept and decrypt the traffic.
