Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Mitre reports :

OpenSSL through 1.0.2h incorrectly uses pointer arithmetic for
heap-buffer boundary checks, which might allow remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (integer overflow and application crash) or
possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging unexpected malloc
behavior, related to s3_srvr.c, ssl_sess.c, and t1_lib.c.
