Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by a remote code execution
vulnerability.

Description :

According to its self-reported version, the Oracle GlassFish Server
running on the remote host is 2.1.1.x prior to 2.1.1.27. It is,
therefore, affected by a heap buffer overflow condition in the ASN.1
decoder in the Network Security Services (NSS) library. A remote
attacker can exploit this, via crafted OCTET STRING data, to cause a
denial of service or to execute arbitrary code.
