FreeBSD : LibreSSL -- TLS verification vulnerability (24673ed7-2bf3-11e7-b291-b499baebfeaf)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Jakub Jirutka reports :

LibreSSL 2.5.1 to 2.5.3 lacks TLS certificate verification if
SSL_get_verify_result is relied upon for a later check of a
verification result, in a use case where a user-provided verification
callback returns 1, as demonstrated by acceptance of invalid
certificates by nginx.
