OpenSSL < 0.9.6e / 0.9.7b3 Multiple Remote Vulnerabilities
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 11060
SynopsisThe remote service uses a library that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote service seems to be using a version of OpenSSL that is older than 0.9.6e or 0.9.7-beta3.
Such versions are affected by a buffer overflow that may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the remote host with the privileges of the application itself.
SolutionUpgrade to OpenSSL version 0.9.6e / 0.9.7beta3 or later.
