New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionOpenSSL Team reports :
Rob Hulswit has found a flaw in the OpenSSL TLS server extension code parsing which on affected servers can be exploited in a buffer overrun attack.
Any OpenSSL based TLS server is vulnerable if it is multi-threaded and uses OpenSSL's internal caching mechanism. Servers that are multi-process and/or disable internal session caching are NOT affected.
In particular the Apache HTTP server (which never uses OpenSSL internal caching) and Stunnel (which includes its own workaround) are NOT affected.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
