Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80925


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


OpenSSL Security Advisory :

A memory leak can occur in the dtls1_buffer_record function under certain conditions. In particular this could occur if an attacker sent repeated DTLS records with the same sequence number but for the next epoch. The memory leak could be exploited by an attacker in a Denial of Service attack through memory exhaustion.
