The remote host has software installed that is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The remote host has a version of Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS) installed that is missing a vendor patch. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

An out-of-bounds read error, known as the 'Heartbleed Bug', exists related to handling TLS heartbeat extensions that could allow an attacker to obtain sensitive information such as primary key material, secondary key material, and other protected content.
