The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201110-01 (OpenSSL: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenSSL. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
Impact :

A context-dependent attacker could cause a Denial of Service, possibly execute arbitrary code, bypass intended key requirements, force the downgrade to unintended ciphers, bypass the need for knowledge of shared secrets and successfully authenticate, bypass CRL validation, or obtain sensitive information in applications that use OpenSSL.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All OpenSSL users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-libs/openssl-1.0.0e' NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since September 17, 2011. It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by most of these issues.
