The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.


F5 Product Development has determined that the BIG-IP and Enterprise Manager products use a vulnerable version of OpenSSL; however, the vulnerable code is not used in either TMM or in Apache on the BIG-IP system. The vulnerability is considered to be a local vulnerability and cannot be exploited remotely.
