New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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


OpenSSL reports :

A flaw in the implementation of Montgomery Ladder Approach would create a side-channel that leaks sensitive timing information.

A local attacker might be able to snoop a signing process and might recover the signing key from it.
