Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

Neel Mehta discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled memory in the TLS heartbeat extension. An attacker could use this issue to obtain up to 64k of memory contents from the client or server, possibly leading to the disclosure of private keys and other sensitive information.
