FreeBSD : OpenSSL -- Client DoS due to large DH parameter (c82ecac5-6e3f-11e8-8777-b499baebfeaf)

high Nessus Plugin ID 110504

Language:

Synopsis

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

Description

The OpenSSL project reports :

During key agreement in a TLS handshake using a DH(E) based ciphersuite a malicious server can send a very large prime value to the client. This will cause the client to spend an unreasonably long period of time generating a key for this prime resulting in a hang until the client has finished. This could be exploited in a Denial Of Service attack.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
