Synopsis :

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

Description :

OpenSSL reports :

- ChaCha20/Poly1305 heap-buffer-overflow (CVE-2016-7054) Severity:
High TLS connections using *-CHACHA20-POLY1305 ciphersuites are
susceptible to a DoS attack by corrupting larger payloads. This can
result in an OpenSSL crash. This issue is not considered to be
exploitable beyond a DoS.

- CMS Null dereference (CVE-2016-7053) Severity: Medium Applications
parsing invalid CMS structures can crash with a NULL pointer
dereference. This is caused by a bug in the handling of the ASN.1
CHOICE type in OpenSSL 1.1.0 which can result in a NULL value being
passed to the structure callback if an attempt is made to free certain
invalid encodings. Only CHOICE structures using a callback which do
not handle NULL value are affected.

- Montgomery multiplication may produce incorrect results
(CVE-2016-7055)i Severity: Low There is a carry propagating bug in the
Broadwell-specific Montgomery multiplication procedure that handles
input lengths divisible by, but longer than 256 bits.
